  "description": "<p><strong>Motivation</strong></p>\n\n<p>The data in this dataset is derived and cleaned from the full OpenSky dataset to illustrate the development of air traffic during the COVID-19 pandemic. It spans all flights seen by the network&#39;s more than 2500 members since 1 January 2020. More data will be periodically included in the dataset until the end of the COVID-19 pandemic.</p>\n\n<p><strong>Disclaimer</strong></p>\n\n<p>The data provided in the files is provided as is. Despite our best efforts at filtering out potential issues, some information could be erroneous.</p>\n\n<ul>\n\t<li>Origin and destination airports are computed online based on the ADS-B trajectories on approach/takeoff: no crosschecking with external sources of data has been conducted.<br>\n\tFields <strong>origin</strong> or <strong>destination</strong> are empty when no airport could be found.</li>\n\t<li>Aircraft information come from the OpenSky aircraft database. Fields <strong>typecode</strong> and <strong>registration</strong> are empty when the aircraft is not present in the database.</li>\n</ul>\n\n<p><strong>Description of the dataset</strong></p>\n\n<p>One file per month is provided as a csv file with the following features:</p>\n\n<ul>\n\t<li><strong>callsign</strong>: the identifier of the flight displayed on ATC screens (usually the first three letters are reserved for an airline: AFR for Air France, DLH for Lufthansa, etc.)</li>\n\t<li><strong>number</strong>: the commercial number of the flight, when available (the matching with the callsign comes from public open API)</li>\n\t<li><strong>icao24</strong>: the transponder unique identification number;</li>\n\t<li><strong>registration</strong>: the aircraft tail number (when available);</li>\n\t<li><strong>typecode</strong>: the aircraft model type (when available);</li>\n\t<li><strong>origin</strong>: a four letter code for the origin airport of the flight (when available);</li>\n\t<li><strong>destination</strong>: a four letter code for the destination airport of the flight (when available);</li>\n\t<li><strong>firstseen</strong>: the UTC timestamp of the first message received by the OpenSky Network;</li>\n\t<li><strong>lastseen</strong>: the UTC timestamp of the last message received by the OpenSky Network;</li>\n\t<li><strong>day</strong>: the UTC day of the last message received by the OpenSky Network.</li>\n</ul>\n\n<p><strong>Examples</strong></p>\n\n<p>Possible visualisations and a more detailed description of the data are available at the following page:<br>\n&lt;<a href=\"https://traffic-viz.github.io/scenarios/covid19.html\">https://traffic-viz.github.io/scenarios/covid19.html</a>&gt;</p>\n\n<p><strong>Credit</strong></p>\n\n<p>If you use this dataset, please cite the original OpenSky paper:</p>\n\n<p>Matthias Sch&auml;fer, Martin Strohmeier, Vincent Lenders, Ivan Martinovic and Matthias Wilhelm.<br>\n&quot;Bringing Up OpenSky: A Large-scale ADS-B Sensor Network for Research&quot;.<br>\nIn<em> Proceedings of the 13th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Information Processing in Sensor Networks (IPSN)</em>, pages 83-94, April 2014.</p>\n\n<p>and the traffic library used to derive the data:</p>\n\n<p>Xavier Olive.<br>\n&quot;traffic, a toolbox for processing and analysing air traffic data.&quot;<br>\n<em>Journal of Open Source Software</em> 4(39), July 2019.<br>\n&nbsp;</p>",
