In this paper we describe a first version of ZEUS, a web application that combines browsing, searching and object presentation. With the zooming and panning based navigation concept of ZEUS and a hierarchical organization of the information space we try to solve the problems of information overload. It has to be evaluated if categorization, zooming and a full text search can minimize that the user gets lost in hyperspace. The concept of ZEUS is based on some thesis about human cognition, navigation and exploration which we hope to prove with evaluation and user testing of our application in the future.
