Interactive Flight Risk Visualization Tool

Interactive Flight Risk Visualization Tool

My final project for a class I took as an elective during my last semester at Penn: Javascript and HTML Programming for Planning and Urban Management Applications. I thought it would be interesting to cross-reference current flight routes with the NTSB aviation accident database. The application allows you to enter an origin, from which a prepopulated list of actual destinations that can be reached by major airlines routes is made available, and then visualizes incidents within 100,000 (~62miles) of the queried route that have occured over the last 52 years. It is a work in progress; I’d like to return to it to add additional functionality and interactivity.

This was an experiment to challenge myself and to learn new skills. I had no prior programming or coding experience prior to this class. I was able to learn python, hmtl, javascript, SQL, among others, at a functioning level and am greatly excited to have done so.
