This chapter discusses the design of Web sites to be used as the basis of medical research. It is broken down into three sections: Part 1 discusses the various issues that have to be addressed in the design of a Web site that will be used to assess some intervention based on the Web site. Part 2 discusses the design of such a Web site and the development of a tool to facilitate this process. Part 3 presents the results of preliminary usability analysis for the tool to assist medical researchers in constructing Web sites that can meet the needs and requirements of medical intervention studies. The results of the preliminary interviews, prototype walkthroughs, and preliminary usability studies are presented laying the groundwork for future development and more formal usability studies.

Navigation Becomes Travel Scouting: The Augmented Spaces of Car Navigation Systems
A navigation system is a device that has the capability of knowing your current position, and allows you to determine your destination. Today’s navigation systems use Global Positioning Satellites (GPS) to pinpoint people’s or vehicle’s location, compare it with the sought-after destination and guide along the selected route. Before GPS, car navigation was provided by dead reckoning. In these systems the measurements from wheel and compass sensors were combined to determine a sequence of positions which in turn was compared to a map database.
