Abstract : DGIS began its initial prototype in C language with DIALOG, BRS, NASA/RECON, and DROLS. These prototypes in a third-generation algorithmic language brought to surface a number of problems and questions in dealing with the distinctions of information systems. The issues concern both the user interface and the development design. Experiences, results, and conclusions in working with these systems are brought out. The decision to convert to and continue CCL development with Artificial Intelligence tools is explained. Our effort is a merging of PROLOG and C capabilities, to provide the DGIS user an AI-based searcher assistant interface that makes the human-machine interaction more human-like on DGIS.
