  an UNMODERATED Usenet newsgroup called ""
  for discussing the modeling, storage, and retrieval of scientific data.

  as HDF, netCDF, FITS, and various others.

  Topics of discussion could include problems encountered using
  specific formats, questions about where to get the code for data
  format programs, discussions of specific uses of data format
  programs, etc.

  It is anticipated that readers of the group would be scientists (and
  software developers) who use data formats/models such as HDF,
  netCDF, and  other such programs.

  scientific organizations ranging over such diverse fields as
  astronomy, physics, chemistry, medical research, health care, space
  science, atmospheric sciences, earth sciences and environmental
