Multistep Queries: The Need for a Correlation Environment

  • Mike Hapgood
Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume 182)


It is now widely recognised that there is a need for good methods of disseminating the large amounts of digital data generated by large scientific projects such as space missions and major ground-based observatories. Funding for these large projects can only be justified if there is a good scientific return on the data that they collect. Thus, wherever possible, the data from a project should be made widely available within the user community for that project (subject to any time-limited period of individual privilege).
