WebView is a Java program (an 'applet') that can run in a browser and allow an on-line Topicscape to viewed in read-only mode. Its full name is "Topicsight WebView".

Requirements to run Topicsight WebView

The computer that runs it must have at least half a gigabyte of memory, at least at 1GHz processor, and must have a graphics/video adapter capable of running 3D software. It should use a graphics driver supplied by the graphics hardware maker (i.e. not the default driver supplied by Microsoft as part of Windows).

Specifically, the hardware and driver should support OpenGL 1.3 or above.

What you can do with it

With WebView, you can fly around the Topicscape, center it around any topic, zoom, enter any topic, and open occurrences (files and notes) found in those topics. You can also go to any web location specified in the Details Panel of a topic or occurrence.
