Great Circle Mapper

Via Salon’s excellent Ask The Pilot feature, here is the Great Circle Mapper, a fun way to waste some time online, if a person digs maps, coordinates and mathematics.

For example, here’s all the traveling I did in the past year. Bali, Seattle, Los Angeles, Houston, St. Louis, Saipan, Australia, New Zealand, etc. No wonder my butt hurts – that’s a lot of flying in coach.
