Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceeding with ISSN or ISBNConference contribution with ISSN or ISBNpeer-review


This paper presents ShyWiki, a Spatial Hypertext Wiki. ShyWiki has the flexibility and advantages of spatial hypertext. Hypertext documents in ShyWiki are composed of notes and maps that can be arranged by users. Users can change the spatial/visual attributes of the notes in the wiki pages such as their position, order, color, size, etc. Furthermore, users can move, delete or aggregate notes as well as maps. ShyWiki allows users to perform a collaborative spatial hypertext design due to the fact that the community of users decides the final structure of a wiki page.
