MetadataShow full item record
The Navy/NOAA Oceanographic Data Distribution System (NODDS) is described and its history is traced from the system's inception in 1979. NODDS allows both government and commercial users to access unclassified oceanographic and meteorological data and/or products from the Fleet Numerical Oceanography Center (FNOC). The available data and products are reviewed. The system is currently based on a PDP 11 computer which acquires FNOC products and data from the FNOC mainframe computers. The users access their directories through the TYMNET communications network. At the present time, the system has more than 40 users. Various system expansion issues are reviewed and various options for expansion are discussed. A three to five year expansion option is recommended.
Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited
