Navigation in information space : supporting the individual.

  The issue of how users can navigate their way through large information spaces is one that is crucial
to the ever expanding and interlinking of computer systems. There are many ways of dealing with the issue of navigation.
The use of appropriate metaphors is one, virtual reality and 3D interfaces another. A third is to provide adaptive
interfaces based on individual differences in users navigational ability. This paper takes a critical look at the alternatives
for assisting users to navigate information spaces and concludes by outlining a research agenda for navigation
support.
