Hi all,
Until the day of today I have been putting my birdlists, interesting sightings, etc. in a dBASE IV database that I developed myself back in 1992. I have never gotten around to changing over to a newer, windows type system but with the holiday break coming up I thought it would be a good idea to spend some time importing my old records into a newer system, which should allow for easy comparison of areas/states/countries, years, etc. It needs to be able to tally up quickly anything included in the database and ideally this system should also have plenty space for comments, lats/longs, and perhaps even graphics.
I have been looking around on the net a little bit but there are so many systems out there. My simple question is which one is best & recommended for use by modern day birdwatchers, not only today but also for a few years to come - I don't want to have to change again in a few years time.
Any information would be highly appreciated.
Peter Waanders
