Global_airline_routes (Map Service)


View In:    ArcGIS JavaScript   ArcGIS.com   WMTS  

Current Version: 10.81

Service Description: This layer visualizes over 60,000 commercial flight paths. The data was obtained from openflights.org, and was last updated in June 2014.

Routes were created using the XY-to-line tool in ArcGIS Pro, inspired by Kenneth Field's work, and following a modified methodology from Michael Markieta.

Some cleanup was required in the original data, including adding missing location data for several airports and some missing IATA codes. Before performing the point to line conversion, the key to preserving attributes in the original data is a combination of the INDEX and MATCH functions in Microsoft Excel. 

Example function: =INDEX(Airlines!$B$2:$B$6200,MATCH(Routes!$A2,Airlines!$D$2:Airlines!$D$6200,0))
