approach to online applications involves a screenshot "base map"

is a true Knowledge Management application of my mapping and navigation
technologies. Imagine trying to "map" all the great ideas
ever written by man (ever). I've mapped one of the Great Ideas through
to original source documents on the web...

montage of images from this auto
club site illustrates the variety of services available
to is members. The key word icons provide direct navigationm access to
the corresponding page of more detailed information;
Since maps are highway maps
are an integral part of any AAA operation, why not have a web "site
map" to help people navigate to the information of interest to them?
done for part of the Autodesk site demonstrates the effectiveness of this
visual navigational approach;
it make alot of sense to "map"
out the benefits of the approach that I take to net navigation and knowledge
is an interactive mindmap of an eLearning site that provides efficient
navigation to the the content contained. (click map to access)
a beta version of images.google search engine, I found the best use
of visual sitemapping on the internet. Here are 25 of the best concepts
in use today;
I am trying to use mapping technology to provide another
way to view these graphical sitemaps.
- Here is one of my main current initiatives. I'm developing content
specifically dedicated to internet navigation, for a single site (see
sitemaps), or across the whole net. I apply the philosophy that
the content itself provides the best navigation . If you know anything
about mind-mapping, you'll be able to see what I'm doing.

- In addition to assimilating new knowledge, we can develop practical
skills (like how to use a new software program); Here is the best way
to learn Dreamweave online;
shows how tool boxes on a computer screen can be treated like islands
with links to valuable eLearning content. Again explore the menues this
program uses by mousing-over, clicking, etc..
on-line software application can be fitted with several "skins"
that appeal to different users. Here is one that fronts an online request
for quotation system. Note that all the content and functionality is maintained
by the original software developer.
This is where
we feature the interactive map I develop for your website. ; )

Notice the icons and opaque images used to convey
information in the map
map out a "universe of
eLearning opportunities", I used a solar system metaphor;
- If you are confused do you like to group together the "islands of
Information"? These "topical" islands are one of the best
ways to organize information. When presented in a visual manner we can
see helpful associations and relationships (forget about useless alphabetical
indexes and directories!).
is an example of the islands of information approach to information
mapping. See how I used it to categorize eLearning products and vendors.
I continue to be focused on the use of the internet for
learning and training purposes.
- If you get lost in the "Silicon Valley" of computer problems, isn't
it nice to have a helpful map that shows possible paths to your solution
destination? It's easy to get lost in these complex net technologies,
so its nice to know that helpful maps are available. I'm one of the
people developing them;
I drew the map at http://www.4realhelp.com/RealHelp/index.htm
over the US westcoast (i.e.; Silicon Valley). It maps out a handful of
directions you can go to get computer help when you are lost (but watch
out for those 3 mischievous "smiley" buttons). This is the first learning
map I built. I'm much better at it now ; )
even possible to "web-enable" those brilliant "dot.com" ideas that you
sketched out on the back of an envelop; Look what we can do with a handwritten
(let your mouse run down some of the
branches). Then we can push back, look out the window and wonder what
"the street" would think about these navigational discovery learning approaches.
- When financial guys talk about "the street", what do they see when
they look out the window?...and
who really cares : ) More importantly what kind of valuable information
can we add to that typical view?....
I developed http://www.1-900-870-6235.com/eLearning/computerstockmap.htm
to introduce the concept of image mapping over familiar realworld
views and images. It's much like adding logo signs to the tops of downtown
buildings, except my graphics provide a window into treasure troves of
valuable information available across the net.
- Sometimes a visual approach will help you "get the picture" (and save
alot of reading time). Even these company names and logos (and their
corresponding websites) can describe my philosophy better than pages
of words ever could...
- When I say that I have mapped out a business plan... I mean it.. http://www.1-900-870-6235.com/Investing/mission2000.htm
