New in-flight maps, which not only plot a plane's course in real time but also offer photos and information about the land or sea beneath the plane, are being unveiled at Singapore Airlines and Norwegian Air Shuttle. "I think people just love to know where they are, and what's down there. It's quite a simple thing, really," said Ben Jarman, the project manager for Hidden Journeys, the program used by Singapore Airlines. "Many people look out the window and are amazed by what they see, but many aircraft don't give them the tools to learn about what's down below."
