Expo 2015: How Milan Is Connected to the World by The Visual Agency

“Flights to Milan” visualizes the daily flights to Milan from all worldwide cities. Expo 2015 will be hosted in Milan, Italy. It is important to show how the city is connected to the rest of the world. In this Dataviz the standard concept of geography is changed. City distance from Milan is proportional to the number of daily connections. The better the city is connected, the closer it appears on the map. The big concentric rings indicate the average daily number of flights from Milan to all worldwide cities which are directly connected. Circle’s area is proportional to the airport traffic of each city (cities with more than one airport report the total traffic). We also categorized the “top 100” worldwide airports per number of flights with a histogram that allows the reader to discover straight away in the circle the geography of each airport.
