The main idea was to relate the given data set to worldwide recurring events and customs like holidays and vacation times as well as to exceptional events like 9/11. Looking at the data this way we could find both certain patterns and disturbance of these patterns during the last 20 years.

In the end we generated a set of information visualizations and gathered them into a poster named »I’ll be home for Christmas«. The challenge was to find a certain question, that could be answered with the data set of worldwide flight traffic, and to create a proper design of these insights within two days of a very intense weekend.
