Satellite Constellations - Orbital distribution

Constellation Orbital Plane Maps

These plots show the orbital plane positions of satellites in the large constellations. Cyan lines show what I infer are the nominal planes; the numbering is arbitrary.

Note that I show planes with ascending nodes separated by 180 deg as separate planes, even though they are arguably the same plane with the satellites going in opposite directions. Also, the ascending node range near 0/360 is repeated on each end of the plot so a plane at 0 deg shows up twice, as 0 and as 360.
