Browsing the SFO Museum Aviation Collection Through Real Time Flight Data

Browsing the SFO Museum Aviation Collection Through Real Time Flight Data

We’ve created a map-based interface that shows real time (or more specifically real time -ish since there is a delay) flights as they are traveling to and from SFO, inside North America. For each of those flights we know the airline servicing the flight, and both its origin and destination airport. As a flight is updated we plot its location on a map and display a popup with a random object, for each facet, from the SFO Museum Aviation Collection. When you click on an object its dedicated web page on the collection.sfomuseum.org website will be opened in a new tab.
