    The issue of how users can navigate their way through large information spaces is one that is crucial
    to the ever expanding and interlinking of computer systems. There are many ways of dealing with the issue of navigation.
    The use of appropriate metaphors is one, virtual reality and 3D interfaces another. A third is to provide adaptive
