The overall goal of this research is to design a distributed, extensible, cross-platform, collaorative, and integrated system that can supplement information systems with hypertext support. In this paper, we propose a dynamically mapped open hypermedia system (DMOHS) framework that can support information systems fully. Our framework has two axes: a logical component focus and an application requirement focus. In Axis 1, we propose a conceptual DMOHS architecture with eight logical components.
more » ... n Axis 2, we de®ne and discuss major aspects of a DMOHS that should be supported in a distributed and integrated environment. Together the two axes provide a grid for specifying the logical DHOMS functionality for supporting application requirements. Given this framework, we ®rst evaluate ®ve open hypermedia systems and the www, and then design our own system implemented on top of the www. This paper also contributes guidelines for building mapping routines that supplement on top of the www. Further, it contributes guidelines for building mapping routines that supplement information systems with hypertext support. q
