World Energy Data Systems (WENDS).
Lareau, William E.
The World Energy Data System (WENDS) allows qualified users on-line access to non-classified management level data on worldwide energy technology and research and development activities. Information is arranged on textual pages and available by means of a simple accessing procedure. Described in this report are the WENDS concept and approach, the method of data storage, and the information retrieval system. Over 25 figures illustrate how the system operates and provide examples of information displays. This system is used to transmit information on foreign energy technology and programs to Department of Energy divisions, the Congress, and other United States government officials going abroad.
