More interactive visualizations of flights data in D3

This post covers two more interactive visualizations I’ve made with d3 on flights data. I had data on all domestic flights within the USA in 2016 (courtesy of the Bureau of Transportation).

Delay Choropleth

The interactive plot is located here – https://shivathudi.github.io/flights-choropleth/.

It shows the percentage of flights delayed from states across the US. The color red encodes this percentage, with deeper shades signifying higher percentages of flights delayed.

Parallel Coordinates

The interactive plot is located here – https://shivathudi.github.io/flights-parcoord/.

It shows multidimensional relationships across carriers – such as the number of flights, the distance in miles, air time in minutes, arrival and departure delays in minutes, etc.

Code

The code for the delay choropleth is located here, while the code for the parallel coordinates is here.
