it easy to move between features. These features include:
- On-line Data. This is the principal means to access StreamNet
data. Data is accessed through a "data query
system". The query system was designed to afford a great deal of
flexibility in accessing data. Several data outputs are also

"contents" button. We also recommend you read the
"help" file to become familiar with the system.

database, fact sheets, photographs, and a special section featuring
drawings of fish by tomorrow's policy makers and resource managers.

available through the "On-line Data" feature described
earlier. A separate map button was provided to provide easy access to
maps by those who might not be familiar with the query system.
