    That's pretty cool. Looks like one of those plasma ball thingies.

    This is really cool. I had an idea recently. I wanted to find a practice area that had the least traffic at lower altitudes (under 10000 feet). If you could generate a heat map like the ones this guy made, but for a longer period of time (a month maybe), you could pretty easily see at a glance where the least amount of traffic is.

    Edit: I mean practice areas *away* from the airports!

    Not a bad idea if you could have the heat map include all aircraft that are squawking any code which should be doable under a Class B veil. We could use something like that for the Denver area. We have established practice areas and they get busy. Would be interesting.
