Abstract
This thesis proposes an extension to the NPSNET 3D virtual world prototype to provide an integrated 3D hypertext. This hypertext would be embedded into the virtual world, and would provide the capability for real-time or non-real-time reference, aspect-change within or around vehicles, direct navigation to a specified 3D location, and other features. Hyper-media such as video or graphic animations, with or without sound, in addition to text files will be accessible though the hypertext. the hypertext elements will be embedded into the virtual world by the use of icons or other symbols, which become visible if selected by the user. Foreseeable applications include hypernavigation, historical reference visualization, direct access to higher-level analysis functions, and contextual referencing for training applications. A prototype of Hyper-NPSNET is planned for initial review in June 1992.
