NASA updates aviation Web site

Jan 14, 2008

The U.S. space agency has updated its National Aviation Operations Monitoring Service.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration said it has added a Microsoft Office Excel formatted version of previously posted files containing pilot survey responses. Previously the data were published in Adobe Acrobate PDF format, NASA's standard format for dissemination of information to the public.

NASA Administrator Michael Griffin made an exception to the agency's usual practice after receiving requests for the data in Excel format. NASA said all subsequent data will be published in both Excel and PDF formats on the Web site.
