Open Archives: Distributed Services for Physicists and Graduate Students (OAD)
This 2001-2002 report evaluates the research done to improve distributed digital library services for two user communities: physicists and graduate students.
Multiple Metadata / Best Metadata Return
The OAI protocol currently supports a simple mapping of metadata names to metadata formats, whereby a metadata record can be requested for exactly one record in exactly one format in a single GetRecord request. In the case ...
Experimental Investigation of the Multiple Row Extended 1/2 End-Plate Moment Connection
End-plate moment connections are widely used by the low-rise metal building industry to provide the rigid connections necessary in gable frames. There are numerous end-plate moment connection configurations. The multiple ...
There is no way to determine all the sets that an identifier belongs to. This is typically referred to as set orthogonality because the protocol allows a harvester to find out which identifiers belong to a particular set ...
A Classification of Interactive Map Software
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 2001), TR-01-26
Map software programs can be different in a number of ways. This paper reports on the classification of interactivity produced as a result of surveying forty map applications. Specific examples from the survey are referenced ...
Design and Evaluation of Menu Systems for Immersive Virtual Environments
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 2001), TR-01-20
Interfaces for system control tasks in virtual environments (VEs) have not been extensively studied. This paper focuses on various types of menu systems to be used in such environments. We describe the design of the TULIP ...
Personalization by Partial Evaluation.
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 2001), TR-01-01
The central contribution of this paper is to model personalization by the programmatic notion of partial evaluation.Partial evaluation is a technique used to automatically specialize programs, given incomplete information ...
Map-Based Navigation in a Graphical MOO
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 2001), TR-01-08
Traditional MUDs and MOOs lack support for global wareness and simple navigation. These problems can be addressed by the introduction of a map-based navigation tool. In this paper we report on the design and evaluation of ...
An Introduction to 3D User Interface Design
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 2001), TR-01-24a
3D user interface design is a critical component of any virtual environment (VE) application. In this paper, we present a broad overview of three-dimensional (3D) interaction and user interfaces. We discuss the effect of ...
NetEdit: A Collaborative Editor
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 2001), TR-01-13
We present a collaborative text editor named NetEdit. NetEdit uses a replicated architecture with processing and data distributed across all clients. Due to replication, the response time for local edits is quite close to ...
