This ebook introduces a brand new paradigm, Geographic Hypermedia, which emerges from the convergence of Geographic info technology and - permedia know-how. either GI technological know-how and hypermedia were quickly evolving fields. The preliminary inspiration of Geographic Hypermedia used to be born in 2004 while the editors have been invited to arrange a workshop in conju- tion with the ‘Hypertext’ convention geared up each year by way of the specified - terest workforce of the organization for Computing equipment. the aim of the workshop used to be to ascertain how hypermedia techniques and instruments will be utilized in geographical domain names. The workshop used to be ultimately held along side the Maps and the net fee of the foreign Cartographic organization on the annual assembly of the organization of yank Geographers in Denver, Colorado, in April 2005. The Denver workshop was once a profitable occasion, bringing jointly mul- disciplinary researchers and execs within the sector of Geographic - permedia. Researchers from 4 continents and good well-known insti- tions offered their paintings and exchanged critiques in regards to the new pa- digm, its content material and particular features from different paradigms. prolonged types of the papers awarded on the workshop in addition to a few invited chapters from specialists within the box resulted in the compendium of the twenty-five chapters during this booklet quantity. Geographic Hypermedia isn't but a mature paradigm yet we aspire to supply the medical neighborhood with a latest view of Geographic Hypermedia, current an outline of its growth and present prestige, whereas additionally selling extra dialogue and research.

Asp March 2006. The commercialization of the Internet in the decade following 1995 is marked both by a large increase in the number of Internet users and a “browser war” with companies attempting to gain control of commerce through a standard browser. Mosaic had morphed into a commercial product called Netscape by October of 1994. Microsoft’s Explorer was released in 1996. 1). Firefox is viewed as a faster, trimmer Web browser that isn’t subject to the crashes and security gaps that afflict the market-leading Internet Explorer.

Printing was complemented and enhanced by precision machines, computers (at first for computational mapping applications and later as complete interactive publishing systems). Later, optical storage media like videodisc, CD-ROM, DVD and their many configurations, communications systems – intranets and the Internet, and interactive installations in the form of hypermedia provided alternative publishing vehicles. Then visualization systems became mobile, providing geographical information ‘where needed’ and delivered on different, smaller platforms.

Firefox is viewed as a faster, trimmer Web browser that isn’t subject to the crashes and security gaps that afflict the market-leading Internet Explorer. A general trend toward open source software, including a hugely popular web server program called Apache, began to take hold as dissatisfaction increased with commercial control of the Internet. Tracking the number of Internet users is an inexact science. According to the Computer Industry Almanac, there are currently one billion Internet users or nearly 16% of the world’s population.
