General information about the usage of the NAVIS distribution maps
Distribution Maps offer you a visual plotting module of ship characteristics. They can be used in two ways:
Alternativly, the wreck information query menu will give you full textual search results and further drilldown possibilities to answer all your detailed questions.
You can use these NAVIS I features only if you have a Java enabled browser. Such browsers are freely available on the Internet at the following addresses:
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 mode 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.
