Ecolynx Project: Information Context for Biodiversity Conservation

CD-ROM applications

Given the importance as an industry standard of Folio Views, the relevance of the new release (Version 4.1) was explored in comparison with the version currently used by UIA (version 3.1, which has several language versions). It turned out that version 3.11a enabled hyperlinks from a CD to external Web sites, and this facility was used for the prototype. Version 4.1 will only have a range of language versions in late 1997-98. A related consideration was the relevance of the compatible Folio webserver (siteDirector). These topics were explored by attendance at the European Folio Conference (London, 3 February 1997).
