Multimodal Map

Multimodal Map (1995-96 version, travel planning), (1994 version, real estate)

A teacher at a blackboard communicates with a classroom of students by drawing, speaking, underlining, circling, writing -- all simultaneously. Communicating with a network of distributed software agents should be this easy! Using a map-style interface, users can naturally combine writing, speaking, and gesturing to retrieve information and issue commands to distributed agents. The focus of this application is on resolving the many ambiguities that arise through natural language and multiple modalities, using the power of the distributed, parallel architecture provided by OAA.
