Landing Predictor Software

There are some great online resources which will use current weather data, as well as the specs of your payload (balloon size, payload weight, etc.) to predict possible landing zones of your payload. One of our students took the lead on researching landing predictor software and provided us with a likely landing zone for the payload.

Here are some links to a few online landing predictors. It appears these predictors have been quite accurate for launches from other groups. I’ll post an update after our launch with the accuracy of our prediction.
