Facts Regarding Open File Report  99-449


   The information contained on this CD-ROM may be accessed as ASCII text files or as HyperText Markup Language (HTML), a standard language utilized by the Internet World Wide Web .  Development of the CD-ROM documentation and user interface in HTML allows access the information by a variety of WWW information browsers (i.e. Netscape, Microsoft Internet Explorer) to facilitate browsing and locating information and data. Each CDROM contains a complete set of the HTML pages, image files and navigation data, but only SEG-Y data for 1/3 of the seismic lines. This was done due to large size of the SEG-y files and the limited amount of space on each CDROM.
