Abstract:

An approach for the display of battlespace terrain ownership data on a semantic Web is presented. Scaleable vector graphics SVG, a two-dimensional Web graphic based on the extensible markup language XML, is used. The SVG document accesses and modifies XML data using interpreter language ECMAScript variables and functions, as well as globally-defined objects of the document object model for the Batik SVG browser, from its script element. ECMAScript functions were written for dynamic updating on the client machine. Interactive visualization of the scene-graph using extensible three-dimensional graphics, which is also XML-based, is being added for user inputs and external events.
