Using Mosaic and other emerging Internet toots, a user at a workstation or personal computer attached to the Internet can find and access multi-media information hosted on server systems anywhere in the world, using an intuitive point and shoot interface in a windowed environment. The power of these systems derives from clever structuring of the databases, so that any server can point to data hosted by any other server. This presentation provides a brief introduction to the terminology and user interface paradigms of the World Wide Web, and conveys a feeling of how simple it is to publish as well as access information in these modes. Evolving DTICIAC and other WWWGopher resources in robotics and related fields are identified, and the possible roles and implications for the Unmanned Vehicle community of these decentralized, highly distributed public information sharing tools are discussed.
