What’s the busiest airport in the United States? That simple question led Geographica on a path to insights and analyses of airports and flights all around the globe. Geographica specializes in software solutions to sort, analyze, and visualize data. Using CARTO, they developed a data-driven visualization to derive insights on thousands of data points.
Flight routes isn’t the only data displayed. This interactive map allows you to view the 50 busiest airports in the world, and the number of passengers.
We sat down with Geographica to find out more about this amazing project and why CARTO worked for them.
Why did you embark on this mission?

We started asking even more questions like: Why Atlanta? How are other countries similar? How many flight routes are there from Asia to Europe?
Why did you choose CARTO?
It really came down to three reasons:
One of our favorite things about the Geographica’s flight route tracker is the level of analysis it incorporates. This project allows viewers to consider modern issues that might affect traditional flight patterns.
