The primary objective of this project is to assess the computing needs of the Glacier National Park and to make recommendations with respect to the management of park resources. As originally proposed, one of the principal objectives was to consult with the park service and to suggest alternatives for hardware configurations that would meet the ever increasing information management requirements of Glacier National Park. Before the initial meeting between the principal investigator and park service personnel, however, a Datapoint minicomputer was selected by the regional office in Denver for use by Glacier as well as other parks within the area. Thus, the objectives to be attained by this and subsequent reports will deal primarily with the uses to which the newly acquired hardware can be put as well as suggesting methods of operation and additional hardware which would enhance information processing at Glacier National Park.
