Abstract: Computers are a powerful tool when used for handling environmental data. The computer industry is going through a period of rapid growth and keeping current is difficult, even for computer specialists. However it is becoming increasingly important that persons handling environmental data keep somewhat familiar with the hardware and software options available in order to remain as productive as possible when manipulating environmental data. The recent strategy of various provincial regulatory authorities to require electronic transfer of compliance monitoring data in the near future indicates the universality of this mechanism of environmental data handling. This development will undoubtedly cause growth pains by all parties. Consequently, all operations will be affected directly or indirectly by the application of computers to their environmental commitments. However these difficulties are more than offset by the significant benefits which allow quick response to a wide range of complex questions presented by regulatory agencies and internal company management.
