Exploration of aircraft trails by Air Traffic Experts


In this paper, we describe a set of applications and findings performed by Air Traffic Control (ATC) experts while interactively exploring recorded aircraft trails. ATC experts deal with recorded radar data (aircraft positions, altitude, time, etc). This large quantity of information spoils their visualization with a lot of occlusion and cluttering. With a simple paradigm of brush, pick and drop, users can intuitively filter the dataset by direct manipulation of trails. Through applied examples, we show how a visualization tool and its real time applications take advantage of human vision and are therefore assets for data exploration and validation. This tool allows the visualization and the interaction with large quantity of information, hence enabling overview of the dataset at a whole and quick retrieval of insights.
