The data is to be available via the datacomputer, a specialized node of the ARPA Network that is dedicated to the management of shared data bases and designed to accommodate large ones. The datacomputer, currently under development by Computer Corporation of America (CCA), will provide services* for the use of these data bases, including the weather data.
