Paper Abstract

The emergence of the World Wide Web (WWW) as a universal medium of information exchange provides new opportunities for those involved in the modeling and simulation fields. While technologies such as distributed interactive simulation (DIS) and high level architecture (HLA) have provided mechanisms which allow simulations to interact, WWW technology will allow the users of these simulations to interact. This research project is investigating mechanisms that will provide the ability for multiple users to perform analyses on spatial data in a collaborative, distributed environment. These mechanisms will be capable of displaying static spatial data, as well as real time information from data feeds and the output of models and simulations. Such a system will not only allow analysts at the same location to work together, but it will also allow others to work on the project from remote locations via the Internet.
