Abstract

The purpose of this design project was to develop a new weather display for air traffic controllers to utilize that shows the probabilistic hazard information for convective weather forecasts. Multiple iterations of maps were generated and evaluated for overall effectiveness in conveying uncertainty information for convective weather observations and forecasts with the final maps being tested through interviews with retired air traffic personnel. The goal of these maps was to improve upon current convective weather displays to more accurately show uncertainty and probabilistic hazard information to aid the air traffic controllers (ATCs) in providing guidance for aircraft pilots.
