The NASA Air Traffic Management (ATM) Ontology describes classes, properties, and relationships relevant to the domain of air traffic management, and represents information pertinent to a broad and diverse set of interacting components in the US and the global airspace, including flights, aircraft, manufacturers, airports, airlines, air routes, facilities, air traffic advisories, weather phenomena, and many others. Three different variants of the ATM Ontology are provided: atmontoCore, atmonto, and atmontoPlus. The atmontoPlus variant includes instances covering a sample set of flight, air traffic advisory, and weather data for the month of July 2014. (See Related Ontologies above for descriptions of the other two variants.)
