  2. Not sure if I absorbed the problem correctly - but here is a way to build a large scale data set for free. Write a program (eg java networking package) to trawl all the airport web sites. Parse the arrival/departure data. Analyse and cross reference this info in to a network, mesh etc. This data probably correlates to lots of other data of interest, demographic, carbon footprint, the possibilities are endless...The info changes and refreshes to as fine a grain as you need it.
