Abstract : This report is the culmination of the first stage of development of HyperTech, an interface to multimedia data (text, graphics, imagery, video and audio). Hypermedia capitalizes upon the association between data, permitting data to be linked by context Hypermedia can be used to produce large, richly connected and cross-referenced bodies of information. The software has multiple methods of viewing data, automated linking based upon text content, and input/output in Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) format. The environment was built upon a relational database. The payoff is an alternative interface which can supplement existing retrieval methods. The work focused on improving access to data on intelligence workstations. Development of the hypermedia environment continues. This Final Technical Report provides an overview of the effort, a listing of other documents resulting from the effort, detailed discussions of the approach, and suggestions for future enhancements.
