BaseFER User Guide

The attached document provides a minimum manual for the use of the "BaseFer Online" application, which allows manipulations of the base base iron through a browser.

Access to the application requires registration as a user. This operation is carried out by an administrator of Base Fer. The latter not only provides a user account, which is characterized by an identifier name associated with a strictly confidential password, but also grants rights for editing site cards or administering the database.

The application offers several features for querying the BaseFer database, retrieving data, obtaining statistics, identifying communes, updating site description sheets and obtaining documentation on the basis. This manual presents the main points. It is available in the Documentation section of the application.
