Weather-ATM Analysis and Visualization Environment (WAVE)

Weather-ATM Analysis Visualization Environment (WAVE) is a geospatial and weather-aware software application which allows an analyst to display and play back historical aircraft trajectories along with multiple polygon, point, and/or gridded datasets. WAVE input datasets can range from weather data (thunderstorm depiction, satellite, water vapor, etc.) to user-specific defined datasets. This tool is useful for analysts to better understand and visualize how the NAS responds to various weather events, and can be used to validate and/or improve models in order to better understand the weather’s impact on operations


WAVE can be used in GUI-mode or batch mode to conduct various analysis on user defined specified criteria. WAVE is available to be used by our in-house experts or licensed.
