Created by Mapbox's data analyst Bobby Sudekum, the Don't Fly Drones Here website provides a map showcasing where in the United States and some parts of Canada you can and cannot fly a drone. Downtown Toronto is pretty much off-limits due to Billy Bishop's island airport.

Unmanned drones like quadcopters and fixed-wing aircraft are at the center of new airspace regulations by the FAA. While the FAA deliberates on rules and regulations, states, cities and other national organizations have implemented their own no-fly zones. To help people find safe places to fly, we’ve mapped established no-fly areas where drones are not permitted around all major airports, military bases, and national parks across the country. All the no-fly area data we collected to make these maps is now open data under CC-0.
