GopherVR: Map

Map showing all locations mentioned on Wikipedia article:

GopherVR is an enhanced version of the Unix and Macintosh Internet Gopher clients that includes a 3D visualization tool for viewing resource collections as 3D scenes.

In 1995, the Gopher developers at the University of Minnesotamarker released GopherVR. Using Gopher+ protocol extensions, spatial positions for Gopher resources are specified, and GopherVR clients combine traditional gopher hierarchy browsing with 3D scene navigation .

Unfortunately the software packages for GopherVR were stored on the UMN Boombox FTP server, but (probably due to a defective backup and restore), virtually all Gopher software on this server over 96k in length has become corrupted resulting in the loss of all publicly available copies of the source code.

The source code was rediscovered in June 2008. Various attempts at bringing the code into a state usable on modern systems have been started.
