Using the System
Data is stored in such a way that enables you to view the system from many different perspectives. It is split up between...
- Geographical, where all country and base data is stored
- Inventory, where all manufacturer and product data resides, and
- Air Forces, where all air force data exists, and draws upon information from the above
This means that you can look at a specific Country, and see all the Air Forces and Bases within. Furthermore, you can see all the entire Inventory located in that country.
You could look at a particular aircraft and see all of the Air Forces that own it, and all of the Countries that it is located within.
It is also possible to pull all information regarding a specific Air Force, from reading their summary, to studying their Order of Battle structure, Listing their Inventory and browsing their Bases.
All links for this are situated down the left hand side of every page once you are logged in.
Links to control your access to the system are along the top of each page.
Whenever a piece of text is underlined with a dotted line, you can click on it to pull up a summary of that text. For example, clicking on a country name would give a summary of that particular location. This appears in the form of a box on the page, like a small window. Further popups may be available from within that popup as well as a link at the bottom. This link takes you to a full page of information regarding the item. In this case, a page about a country.
