There seems to be some data for the US, but is there any vector data for UK flight paths?
The best case scenario is to obtain separate lines/polygons for different altitudes (I only need 0-1000m). 1 years worth of records should do the trick.
---- Update ----
I found this (still not optimal data): http://openflights.org/data.html If you scroll down you can download global flight paths in the following format:
Airline 2-letter (IATA) or 3-letter (ICAO) code of the airline. Airline ID Unique OpenFlights identifier for airline (see Airline). Source airport 3-letter (IATA) or 4-letter (ICAO) code of the source airport. Source airport ID Unique OpenFlights identifier for source airport Destination airport 3-letter (IATA) or 4-letter (ICAO) code of the destination airport. Destination airport ID Unique OpenFlights identifier for destination airport Codeshare "Y" if this flight is a codeshare (that is, not operated by Airline, but another carrier), empty otherwise. Stops Number of stops on this flight ("0" for direct) Equipment 3-letter codes for plane type(s) generally used on this flight, separated by spaces
BA,1355,SIN,3316,LHR,507,,0,744 777 BA,1355,SIN,3316,MEL,3339,Y,0,744 TOM,5013,ACE,1055,BFS,465,,0,320
So how do I get that data format into QGIS without coordinate data?
