Abstract :

 

In initiating the Unidata Program, scientists hoped to meet common needs for accessing and using atmospheric data in education and research using state-of-the-art technology. As communications technologies have advanced, Unidata has increasingly become a ''virtual community'' in which participants cooperate, collaborate, and share a variety of resources, including data. The Unidata experience-how it resembles and differs from other concepts of location-independent collaborations-may serve as a model for building and supporting communities of researchers and educators with common needs for data and the tools to use them.
