record:  A database in TNTmips is organized into tables, which contain records. Each record supplies information gathered for an individual example. Records contain one or more fields related to the topic of the table in which they are found. For instance, the Crow Butte soil polygon database has a table of crop potentials, and there is a record for each soil type.  (See also: database, field, table.)
