    FBASE is a microcomputer relational database package that handles data collected using the R1/R4 Fish and Fish Habitat Standard Inventory Procedures (Overton and others 1997). FBASE contains standard data entry screens, data validations for quality control, data maintenance features, and summary report options. This program also prepares data for importation into an ARC/INFO Geographic Information System. Users have easy access to their habitat inventory data in both a raw and summarized format. FBASE is a stand-alone program and has minimal requirements for RAM and hard drive space, making it feasible for running on most systems. The data tables are in a format that makes them easily transportable to other software programs if users wish to further analyze their data or produce custom reports.
