The World Wide Web is one of the fastest growing Networked Information Systems in history. The revolution has been brought about by use of GUIs such as NCSA's Mosaic, and the distributed hypertext language HTML, Universal Resource Locators, and with simple protocols for client server access. Another contributory factor has been the development of a number of filters that have permitted the introduction of material prepared using almost all the well known word processing and desk-top publishing tools. However, this growth has led to problems for new users finding the information they want. This paper is about a tool for generating tours of the web to enable experts to become cyber-carto-graphers, mapmakers of the new virtual world, and share their findings with novice users. © 1994.
