From Tue Jun 22 12:43:26 1993 Newsgroups: comp.infosystems.www From: (Steve Putz) Subject: Experimental Map Browser WWW server at Organization: Xerox PARC Date: Mon, 21 Jun 1993 23:48:43 GMT Some of you have already discovered there is a new experimental World Wide Web Server running at the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center in Palo Alto, California. The address is See: Xerox PARC PubWeb Server Currently the only documents available are via a custom map rendering service -- yet another experiment in providing dynamic information retrieval via World Wide Web. The Map Viewer is implemented as as a perl script that accepts requests for map renderings (encoded as URLs) and returns HTML documents including a Mosaic-style inlined GIF image of the requested map. It does not yet take advantage of the Mosaic extensions for detecting mouse positions within an image. Eventually we may use this server to publish some general information about PARC and perhaps provide access to published PARC technical reports.
