Abstract

This document is intended to be a User's Guide to Hydra. It is aimed toward the standards development engineers and other technical users who may be interested in using Hydra. Hydra is a three-dimensional XML viewer/editor that was developed to aid in standards development efforts. Its purpose is to allow rapid, large-scale visualization of the overall structure of an XML document, easily human-comprehensible searching, and easy editing. It uses OpenGL to display the XML document as a 3D tree structure that can be manipulated in various ways by the user.
