Topological data analysis for aviation applications

Aviation data sets are increasingly high-dimensional and sparse. Consequently, the underlying features and interactions are not easily uncovered by traditional data analysis methods. Recent advancements in applied mathematics introduce topological methods, offering a new approach to obtain these features. This paper applies the fundamental notions underlying topological data analysis and persistent homology (TDA/PH) to aviation data analytics. The authors review past aviation research that leverage topological methods, and present a new computational case study exploring the topology of airport surface connectivity. In each case, they connect abstract topological features with real-world processes in aviation, and highlight potential operational and managerial insights.
