General Information

These Image Maps offer you a visual exploration of the parts and components of ancient ships. However, they do not replace the functionality of the parts & components query mask, which offers you multiple selection options. These Image Maps only inform you about basic parts and components. Since no ancient ship was identical with another ship, there are many constructional variants. Only the parts & components query mask will give you full research access to all these details and variants.

Technical Requirements

You can use this NAVIS I feature if you have a Java enabled browser. Such browsers are available for free on the Internet at the following addresses:
Internet Explorer 4.x at: Microsoft
Netscape Communicator 4.x at: Netscape
Hotjava Browser at: Sun.
The NAVIS Image Maps and Distribution Maps work best if you have a 17" monitor, running at 800 x 600 resolution with 65536 colours (please consult your operating system or monitor manual on how to configure these things). All other configurations might lead to unexpected effects. Unfortunately, we cannot offer a solution for all different monitor types and resolutions, since for security reasons, the Java programming language does not allow the detection of your hardware in realtime. Most modern browsers, however, will allow you to enlarge your screen surface: you may e.g. minimize the NAVIS navigating frame on the left, or use the fullscreen modus of Internet Explorer 4. This will allow you to use this feature even with a 600 x 480 resolution on a 17" monitor. The NAVIS Search & Plot module, however, does not have restrictions and can be used with all different monitor types and resolutions. Although we have tried as much as we can to avoid overcharging your operating system, you will possibly need a machine with at least 64MB of RAM or more, since the graphics will be loaded into your Java Virtual Machine on top of your existing operating system. Trying to view the image maps on computers with less RAM available may result in unstable system behaviour. The advantage is, however, clear: all users on all different modern operating systems, including UNIX or Macintosh, can explore these interactive image maps, as long as they have a Java module implemented.

How to proceed

When you click on one of the thumbnails below, please wait until the image is completely loaded - which may take some time, depending on the speed of your connection to the Internet. The status bar of your browser will inform you about the loading progress of the Image Map. When the Image Map is completely loaded, please move your mouse over a detail or component which you would like to examine. An icon will then pop up, displaying the name of the part or component. If you then move your mouse cursor over this icon, you will see the translated terms appearing beneath it. You may then move your mouse to the appropriate term in your language, which will then be a highlighted hyperlink into the database.
