Two Level Hypermedia

An Improved Architecture for Hypertext

  • Chapter
Database and Expert Systems Applications

Abstract

In this article we present the Two Level Hypermedia architecture. Both levels of this architecture are detailed in the framework of a conceptual model of hypermedia. A central aspect of this model is the notion of a view. The concept of a hyperindex is introduced, which is a novel approach to organizing indexing information relevant for hypermedia. In conjunction with the hyperindex, the notion of Query by Navigation (QBN) is introduced.
