Global Flight Position data in GeoJSON Now Available on Laminar Data!
The Laminar Data Team is happy to announce that the global flight positions data already available via our SWIM compliant FIXM API is now also available via GeoJSON API!
The Flights by Tile API has always received great feedback, however, developers in the aviation community have expressed their interest in accessing a GeoJSON API to consume a much lighter payload of data than ever before. The new API means visualisation has never been easier; in less than 5 lines of code you can quickly render this data in your preferred mapping engine, such as Leaflet or Google Maps.
This is the first time that the aviation industry has had access to a full production quality, reliable and resilient (99.9% uptime) GeoJSON API for flight positions.
