I'm giving up on the fancy viz, from here on out I make everything look like Pac Man. So, a few weeks ago I got interested in how public sites track ships and planes. I wound up doing some simple (infrequent) scrapes to see what the data looks like over time. Tonight I finally reassembled the data and plugged it into Pylab. Now all I need to do is figure out how to plot Blinky and I'll be set.
