To clarify, the museum exhibit only displays a few of the Euclidean groups; it focuses more on being accessible to kids and the general public. If you want to be able to illustrate all of the groups, I would suggest taking a look at "Kali", a Euclidean symmetry drawing program for SGIs by Center Postdoc Nina Amenta (available from ftp.geom.umn.edu). The basic operation of the program is to reproduce everything you draw under the action of the chosen group. > Your online web software sound like the greatest thing > ever. I can't wait until I can arrange to use it. I'd welcome educational uses of our interactive gallery. Feedback from that will help us provide better documentation and explanations of the concepts. And the Web has the potential to provide some very nice documentation! PB
