I looked at "Clooz" which I understand is developed with
"Access." However, Clooze has no data input template suitable for a
typical land patent or deed description as one would need at a
county map level. I don't have the skill set to set up a database
management application myself.. Has anyone found a user friendly program
of this type?
I have not had the need for such a system, but if you can open
MS/Access on your computer then you have enough skills to set up a
database yourself. It may be a simple database with just the minimum
capabilities at the beginning, but Access is a rather easy program to use.
Just start Access and invoke Help. Enter "Create Database" in the
query field and hit Enter. The search results will probably show
some two dozen or more hits. Select the "Create an Access Database"
option. That pretty much gives you the step-by-step process that
leads you to create a database. Most of the time, you will be using
wizards that eliminate a lot of the questions that you might have and
more or less just lead you by the hand.
Hope this helps -
