# Electronic Communication at the Geometry Center

The Geometry Center has been a pioneer in the area of electronic
technical communications. The Center's web site, is one of the oldest
and most innovative on the web, and continues to earn international
recognition.
One of the most exciting projects currently underway is an effort in
conjunction with the World Wide Web Consortium to develop standards
for including mathematical notation in web pages. The WebEQ project
is designed in part to serve as a reference implementation of the
Consortium's final HTML Math proposal.

Other electronic communication projects at the Geometry Center
span the spectrum from Java visualization software, to Real Audio, to
search and indexing software, to interactive technical document
design.

The Geometry Center contracts with private industry as well as
government labs to do electronic document design, production and
consulting. If you are interested in discussing your electronic
document needs with us, please contact us either by email to
software@geom.umn.edu or by calling us at 1-612-626-0888.

## Software Projects

- WebEQ -- WebEQ software makes it
possible for authors to put mathematical notation in their web pages
by putting LaTeX commands directly in an HTML file. Look at the
preview of version 2.0.

- IDVI -- The idvi Java dvi previewer
displays any dvi file directly in the browser. It is fully hypertex
compliant, so authors can embed links, as well as images and other
applets.
