The video clip depicts a computer simulation of a global pandemic. The spreading takes place on the worldwide air transportation network of more than 4000 airports and 25000 direct links. The right panel shows the spread in the conventional geographic representation. The left panel shows the same dynamics in a more appropriate representation in which radial distance corresponds to an effective distance.
