ISDAT Assumptions

Considering the fast development in the computer technology, and the expected long development period for the ISDAT, it was necessary to make a number of assumptions at an early stage of the development. At the time of the project definition, none of these assumptions were fulfilled. The adopted assumptions are:
  • Mass storage prices will allow a local storage of the data bases.
  • Processing price/performance will allowing unpacking, calibration and formatting of data from raw data formats to be performed at the time of data analysis.
  • Local and wide area networks will allow for considerable amounts of data to be communicated over networks.
  • Standardisation of operating systems will allow operation on a number of platforms using the same source code.
