Mosaic designing and deploying Wind Miles Model for NASA

Mosaic is thrilled to announce a new project with NASA. Mosaic will design and deploy a Wind Miles Model to be used by the aviation community to simplify accurate calculation of the impact of forecast winds on any flight plan.

Currently, it is challenging and time consuming to accurately calculate the effects of wind in the analysis of flight time and desirability of each route. The Wind Miles Model will be a web service that accepts a #flightroute as input, and provides the ground-track distance for the route, as well as the effective distance that a flight would fly considering the impact of the wind on the flight route.
