DNPA STORAGE SYSTEMS 6.1 General All data, both generated (raw) and processed needs to be catalogued and stored in a manner which will facilitate its efficient retrieval when required. Data generated in-field during a testing progranune may represent a substantial number of files. This raw data will require a system of cataloguing, storage and backup even before any processing is considered . . Mainframe management of corporate data is currently established in the organisation for hydrographic data and has facilitated initial groundwater data base requirements. The imminent inst;:lllation of the "HYDSYS" data base system incorporating a current development for groundwater data management will enable all data to reside on the mainframe. The system of magnetic tape archiving currently being employed would be sustantially increased in capacity as a consequence to service groundwater requirements. The avenue provided by micro computers and diskette storage is considerable. The advantages lie In the user domain whereby ease of retrieval and portability of processed data and access to an array of groundwater analysis and presentation packages developed specifically for the micro computer is readily available. Thus the primary purpose of acquiring and ~ollating data, to provide a basis for analysis and d.esign, may be served in the most efficient manner if this data were to be available on diskette, or through networking of the in-house computing facilities. However, caution in protecting and ensuring uniqueness of origi.nal data sets is recognised as being of major importance. TherE,fore, any modifi.cation, including post processing and interpretation in parameter calculation should be confined to the user's own work space and labelled as such. Procedural
