[35]  It is our belief that increasing data volumes demand new tools and methods to maximize scientific efficiency and that software tools and mathematical methods exist which, provide analysis, classification, access, discovery and forecast methods for large volume data sets. Grid will play an important part in making these tools available on the internet for use with the distributed archives that are being developed now and in the future. The SPIDR system is an early implementation of a Grid system, which while discipline focused, exhibits the key operational components of a of a true Grid environmental data system. The SPIDR system itself may be used as a pattern for those interested in implementing such an environmental tool.
