Actually it can streamline it a bit as Digital Atmosphere automatically constructs the name of the file it needs to download, whereas without it you'd have to hunt through directory listings (which could take a long time on dialup). Also once the data is in Digital Atmosphere, the user can browse through the maps very quickly, rather than load up a multitude of images off the Internet.

The files Digital Atmosphere needs are small (from 5K for radar to 400K with surface data), so I think if the "someone" is a bit patient they'll be happy with Digital Atmosphere.
