MATISSE: an ArcGIS tool monitoring and nowcasting meteorological hazards"



MATISSE<img alt="" src="" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><p>​<span style="line-height:107%;font-family:"calibri",sans-serif;font-size:11pt;"><span lang="EN-GB"><font color="#000000">Adverse meteorological conditions are one of the major causes of accidents in aviation, resulting in substantial human and economic losses. For this reason, it is crucial to monitor and early forecast high impact weather events. In this context, CIRA (Italian Aerospace Research Center) has implemented MATISSE (Meteorological AviaTIon Supporting SystEm), an ArcGIS Desktop Plug-in able to detect and forecast meteorological aviation hazards over European airports, using different sources of meteorological data (synoptic information, satellite data, numerical weather prediction models data). MATISSE presents a graphical interface allowing the user to select and visualize such meteorological conditions over an area or an airport of interest. The system also implements different tools for nowcasting of meteorological hazards and for the statistical characterization of typical adverse weather conditions for the airport selected.</font></span></span></p>
