The Space Physics Archive Search and Extract (SPASE) project is an international collaboration among Heliophysics (solar and space physics) groups concerned with data acquisition and archiving. The SPASE group has simplified the search for data through the development of the SPASE Data model as a common method to describe data sets in the archives. The data model is an XML-based schema and is now in operational use. The use is expanding, but there are still other groups who could benefit from adopting SPASE. We discuss the present state of SPASE usage and how we foresee development in the future.
