WELCOME TO NETSPEDITION! Netspedition was an interactive
scientific expedition to the Amazon region of southern Venezuela. The expedition's
primary objective was to demonstrate that scientific research in a highly
remote regions could be conducted interactively over the internet. During
the course of their adventure, the Netspedition team conducted a butterfly
and a limnological study at various stages in the jungle. The results in
the form of text, data and images were released onto Web for immediate
analysis by collaborating scientists back in the UK. Based on their analysis,
the scientists were able advise and direct the team maximising the research
productivity of the expedition and demonstrating, for the first time, another
powerful use of the internet.
Although primarily a scientific expedition, the entire internet community
were also able to experience Netspedition. As the team canoed along the
rivers of the Amazon a continuously updated log of the team's adventure
was placed onto the Web including sounds and images of what is one of the
most spectacular regions on this planet. Needless to say, the expedition
was followed in real-time by thousands of people around the world!
Within these Web pages you now have to opportunity to relive this exciting
