Abstract:

This report describes a pilot program in the computer storage and retrieval of environmental impact information. The basic concepts related to implementation and the modes of access to the data are discussed. Also, an outline of the nature of data and the requirements for its management are given, followed by an expression of the reasons for choosing System 2000, a generalized data-base management system developed by MRI Systems Corporation, as the framework for the software. Lastly, the capabilities of this application of System 2000 are discussed in general terms, accompanied by an extensive set of specific examples and representative commands from the DA study, Procedures for Evaluating Environmental Impact of Army Military Programs, for which this computer system was initially developed. Several appendices, expanding on subjects mentioned in the report and serving as reference material, are provided.
