Summary
Abstract: (Summary adapted from the OceanPC web site and supplemental information)

OceanPC is an Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) project
to organize a system of free or inexpensive software for processing of
oceanographic data (principally oceanographic profile data) on
IBM-compatible microcomputers. Using OceanPC, you can:

l) Enter various types of oceanographic observations from your own
files;

2) Merge your own data with historical data from other ships and
nations to create a local or regional Oceanographic Atlas;

3) Analyze, display, print, and plot the merged data; and

4) Exchange data with oceanographers and National Data Centers around
the world.

OceanPC accommodates the wide diversity of data types, formats, and
applications of oceanographic data. A wide variety of improvements to
OceanPC are desirable, particularly more flexible interfacing between
large, "standard" system. Within the original project constraint of
providing a reasonably sized, low cost system, the project team will
work toward incorporating additional components into succeeding
versions of OceanPC.
