This is a project that attempts to explains the substance, uses and
complex methods adopted to produce the GSC-II catalog via a multimedia interactive interface. The content ranges from pretty pictures,
through simple graphical descriptions to complex professional articles. It is aimed at a technically sophisticated level though does
not require previous knowledge of Astronomy.
The tour is distributed via a CD-ROM media as it is too large to be comfortably viewed over the web with
today network speeds. If you wish a copy you can either send an address directly to Ricky Smart
(email: firstname.lastname@example.org), the scientist in charge of the project, or
download a zipped version directly from here
(Caution! this is a
250MB zip file). Most recent computers running a Microsoft Windows based operating system should have no
problem viewing and moving within the tour structure.
We hope you enjoy this product and we welcome comments.
