Abstract : Alternative organizational Earth data base structures to accommodate remotely sensed meteorological, oceanographic, and environmental measurements made from spaceborne instruments were investigated. Operating capabilities include constant, but selectable, geometric resolution; updating in place; direct access to local geographic areas; and retrieval of areas by serial bit strings. Two organizational structures were identified as data base candidates. (Author)
