dc.description.abstractThis paper proposes a user interface for remote access of the National Library of Medicines Visible Human digital image library. Users can visualize the library, browse contents, locate data of interest, and retrieve desired images. The interface pr esents a pair of tightly coupled views into the library data. The overview image provides a global view of the overall search space, and the preview image provides details about high resolution images available for retrieval. To explore, the user sweeps the views through the search space and receives smooth, rapid, visual feedback of contents. Desired images are automatically downloaded over the internet from the library. Library contents are indexed by meta-data consisting of automatically generated miniature visuals. The interface software is completely functional and freely available for public use, at: (Also cross-referenced as CAR-TR-798) (Also cross-referenced as ISR-TR-95-99)en_US
