Fantastic Animation of Planes – level 1

20-04-2023 15:00

An animation shows flights in Europe. One plane is represented by one white point.

The animation uses radar information. It also uses flight plans. Both information is from summer 2013. There are 30,000 flights across Europe every day. You can see two London airports in the video. One day, 5,675 planes came and left British airports.

Difficult words: flight (journey in a plane), represent (be a small version of something), radar (special machine for watching planes).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What type of data is represented by the white points in the animation?
