General Comments


When creating the Chickscope website, the design team attempted to make navigating through the vast quantity of information easy and consistent. Easy in that the younger visitor may enjoy the bright colors and large buttons. Consistent in that each page has a similar look and feel, with a common mechanism on each page to move through the layers of pages on the web site.

Each page attempts to present a set of visual cues that help the reader identify their location within the complex structure of the entire website. For example, the title bars, as displayed in windowed browsers like Netscape, indicate the path to the current resource. Further cues will be discussed below.

Every page on the Chickscope website has the same document template: a chickscope banner across the top, section tabs on the left hand margin, subsection buttons along the bottom, and extra navigation buttons (if needed) in the right-hand corners.

If a page lacks the Chickscope banner, then that page probably exists on a server outside of the Chicksope project. Every attempt has been made to reduce the number of outside links, but occasionally an outside link is not only required but desirable. The banner should help identify a page as being a Chickscope page very quickly.

This help page gives general help that applies to the entire website. For help specific to the Chickscope MRI Database or to the Chickscope Scratchings, either follow these links, or from the Database and Scratchings pages click on the HELP tab.
