Meteorological information is currently available in several message formats and also in the form of maps or charts and plain text. Although end users are accustomed to these formats, they limit the opportunity to use the data effectively, for example to prioritise key information, or highlight relevant weather phenomena. Access to more precise weather data can assist decision making when it comes to flight planning, resource planning, and route planning, and can help to avoid unnecessary delay.
