Definitions[]

Internet[]

In the spring of 1993, a software program called Mosaic was developed by a team of students at the University of Illinois/National Center for Supercomputing Applications. The Mosaic browser allows users to view both text and graphics. This transition to a visual interface sparked rising interest in the Web.

Marc Andreesen, one of the students who created Mosaic, later cofounded Netscape, which became one of the two dominant web browsers (the other being Microsoft's Internet Explorer).

Photography[]

A mosaic is

[a]n assembly of overlapping photographs that have been matched to form a continuous photographic representation of a portion of the surface of the Earth.[1]
