The GRIP Flight Tracks and Animations dataset includes both KML files and animation files. The KML files use Google Earth to show the flight tracks on a map. The animations vary by type. Created by the Real-time Mission Monitor (RTMM) software, the .avi files show the flight track versus time superimposed over the GOES IR data. The National SubOrbital Education and Research Center provided a file in two formats (.mov, .mp4) viewing hurricane Earl from the NASA DC-8 aircraft. Also a NBC newscast informs the public of the GRIP's goals during the campaign.
