In fact many people working on VRML were inspired by the Cyberspace detailed in William Gibson ’s novels: Cyberspace. A consensual hallucination experienced daily by billions of legitimate operators, in every nation, by children being taught mathematical concepts . . A graphic representation of data abstracted from the banks of every computer in the human system. Unthinkable complexity. Lines of light ranged in the nonspace of the mind, clusters and constellations of data. Like city lights, receding (Gibson, 1986).

The use of subjective visualisations (Jää-Aro and Snowdon, 2001) may provide a technique for merging planetaria since the same web page could be presented differently to different users, thus preserving individual layouts while allowing a degree of interaction between users. 1 Introduction The eSCAPE project (ESPRIT Long Term Research Project 25377) set out to investigate the idea of an “electronic landscape” (e-scape): large-scale inhabited information spaces represented as a three-dimensional (3D) virtual environment (VE) in which users could interact with applications, find routes to other virtual worlds, access sources of data, and interact with one another at a social level.

6 shows a collection of linked clusters. When refined, the current application structure approach should lend itself to parallelisation: letting different processes handle different clusters. This in turn would enable a distribution of calculations on different hosts to allow more complex visualisations. 6 A set of interconnected cluster abstractions. Their sizes roughly reflect the number of objects (here pages) contained within. 5 The Web Planetarium: Creating a Richer Visualisation The Web Planetarium extends the WWW3D concept with the idea of the system becoming a gateway between different virtual spaces.
