GOWN is intended to be a tool to assist the scientist and manager. Design of the system emphasizes flexibility, utility, and compatibility. GOWN is a computer-operated data-processing system using magnetic tape as the basic storage medium.The programs to create well-log, well-data, and catalog files have been developed and other files can be added as needed. Extensive use of parameter codes and mnemonic codes is made, enabling data from a variety of sources to be handled. A library of retrieval routines will be developed so that data can be presented as graphs, maps, or sections.It is anticipated that GOWN will substantially increase the efficiency of the scientist by relieving him of the load of routine data manipulation.
