Where does the data come from?

An ADS-B receiver near the park captures transmissions directly from nearby aircraft.

Can I get this for my own area?

The site is built to support other locations, if you'd like to set up a page for your local park, beach, or other public space, you can get in touch at Custom set up and data for commercial use is also available.

Does the count include helicopters?


What can be done about urban airplane noise?

Noise from low-flying airplanes impacts a lot more than people enjoying the park: many people in NYC, and millions around the world live in homes exposed to "significant" airplane noise, which can have serious health impacts above and beyond simple annoyance.
