Spies in the Skies is a visualization that won the award for Most Beautiful in the 2016 Information is Beautiful Awards. This visualization shows where government planes, piloted by the FBI and Department of Homeland Security, are monitoring specific locations around the country. The visualization allows the viewer to look at specific addresses as well as look at an overview of the country as a whole.
