Netspedition is an interactive scientific expedition. A team will conduct experiments in remote areas of the Amazon Rainforest and prove that research can be conducted interactively on the internet. Sounds and images of what the team encounters during their eight week journey will be digitilized and transmitted on the internet to this site. An updated log of their adventures and daily travels will also be kept. One option is to follow the interactive map and go where the scientists have gone! A description of different animals and plants that they will research, will also be on the web page. Thus, the user can see and gather more information on the things they are seeing and discussing
Netspedition is a very informative and exciting site. It allows the user to see and do practically everything the team of scientists are doing in the Amazon Rainforest for eight weeks. The most impressive attribute of Netspedition is the graphics. They are absolutely amazing! Children will be amazed by them and learn a great deal from the information.
This is excellent for many people of varying interests and will be educational as well. We will be able to see the true potential of the internet and how it could change research in the future.
