Threat recognition and geographical training are fundamental parts of the requisite knowledge base for a large number of naval personnel who are assigned to operational or operations-oriented support billets. Yet readiness in these areas is often lacking, in large part due to the paucity of readily available, motivational instruction tools. This thesis explores major issues involved in integrating two emerging technologies, hypermedia and digital optical media (DOM), in the context of developing a prototype of just such an application: the GEOgraphic and Threat RECognition (GEOTREC) training and reference tool. The hypermedia software package used to develop the GEOTREC prototype, Hyperdoc version 1.12, gives evidence of the maturation yet needed in the integration of hypermedia and DOM technologies in application authoring tools. This thesis recommends the development of a system at least somewhat analogous to the GEOTREC prototype. Such a tool, using both hypermedia and DOM, would not only provide an enjoyable, intuitive, yet challenging way to foster multi-sensory learning, but also a quick, powerful, and easy-to-use reference to geographical and threat information needed for a myriad of operational scenarios.
