Humans don't organize thought alphabetically. Our minds draw links by subject, as does the Circle Of Knowledge Multimedia Encyclopedia. Unlike traditional CD-ROM encyclopedias, the Circle Of Knowledge organizes information by the way we think, in related categories. This exciting new interface brings new technologies together, seamlessly integrating exciting multimedia video, hundreds of photographs, musical selections, maps, narrations and timelines to complement its extensive text. It has detailed coverage of thousands of significant topics from ancient mythology to the space shuttle.
The Circle Of Knowledge covers a broad range of information, including: a complete thesaurus, current information, flags, national anthems, and flags of every country of the world; extensive plant and animal dictionaries; art gallery with artists' biographies; hundreds of complete musical compositions; maps of the entire world and universe. It also features special places to explore: the Space Shuttle, and old fort, a wharf, an ironworks, a 50,000+ word book on U.S. history, complete with hypertext links, graphics, video and much more.
