Based on data providing the number of passengers traveling from every airport in a non-U.S. city into every airport in a U.S. city in the years 1990 and 2010, this motion piece highlights the broadening expansion of the global transportation system and how, with the increased number of flights and access to airports around the world, the average international traveler to the U.S. in the past 20 years has been diversified. Differentiated by color and size, the ten countries with the most amount of passengers traveling to the U.S. in both 1990 and in 2010 are shown simultaneously fitting into the U.S. to communicate the change and increase in the cultures that are continuously adding to the richness of the U.S. as a direct result of the growing global transportation network.
