The management of geophysical data has traditionally been the domain of, large scale computer data bases, often with different data bases containing different aspects of the data. For example shot point locations are more often than not on a different system to any trace data. Interpretation workstations have to manage all aspects of seismic data if they are to be used successfully. They manage location data, trace data and interpretation data within the same system, the question is whether they are good enough to displace the "corporate" data base systems which have been developed over the years. This paper reviews the requirements of a geophysical data base and compares the capability of a modern workstation with the corporate need.
