The Data's in the Details
The FAA Eyes Big Data Possibilities
By David Hughes, Federal Aviation Administration
Big data is expanding the impact of the FAA's NextGen initiative in a big way. As NextGen implementation continues to move forward, the agency is disseminating digital flight, aero-nautical and weather data, and collaborating with industry on ways to make use of the vast amounts of available information. The agency is also conducting research on new applications made possible by technological advances that increase the accessibility of FAA data.
