The first phase of this project will be completed by the end of December 2001. This phase includes the transition from the delivery of GOES data on 3590 tapes every several days to the continuous direct delivery of new GOES data via telecommunications networks between Asheville, NC, and the University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI. These data will be directly imported to the automated robotics storage system at NCDC. User requests, can then be made via the current web-based On-line Store, which will allow quick delivery of GOES data via the Internet (or the Abilene network for researchers) or on a variety of magnetic tapes (3480, 3590, 8mm). These new procedures will improve customer servicing by a factor of 10 to 50. Phase two will be to develop a web-based Geographical User Interface (GUI), which will provide customers the capability to search inventories, browse images, make selections, and order GOES images and data in various formats via the Internet. The long term goal is to provide to customers a unified GUI interface for both the Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite (POES) and GOES satellite data with the capability to add new satellite systems.
