There is a brief summary of data collection, analysis, distribution, and data exchange requirements in SWD. The hardware comprising the SWD data collection and transmission system is briefly described. The primary method of transmitting information from remote gage sites is via the Geostationary Orbiting Environmental Satellite (GOES) Systems. Processing of the data is done by a network of minicomputers located at three (3) district offices and the division office. The manual details the water manager user requirements as to the products needed. The software system consisting of acquisition group, data base, analysis group and data base utility group. Also interfacing with these groups is system support software required to provide a 'user friendly' system.
