Central and directory services

As part of the activities on projects WWW.HR and CROSS, a draft of instructions has been developed in order to improve the searchability of the Croatian WWW space. The instructions were published on 18 January 2001 as CDA0027 "How to improve the searchability of the Croatian World Wide Web space by using metadata".


The www.hr service includes the home page of Croatia and a catalogue of www servers.

Activities in the year 2000:

  • "Izdanje 2000" ("Publication 2000") has been produced with new graphical design of the clickable map of Croatia, divided into counties and clearly highlighted county centres, and graphical element denoting other towns in the county, as well as the islands.
  • Contents have been expanded, including culture, economy, and sport.
  • The quality of information provided by the service has been improved, two topical maps have been made, a map of national parks and a map of CARNet members.
  • The catalogue has been redesigned in accordance with the homepage.
  • The catalogue structure has been internally reorganised through the database.
  • The administrative interface has been improved as well as the interface for application of new servers.
  • The catalogue search has been improved by expanding the possibilities to three types of queries: by means of given words, any given word, and logical search by using symbols + ("and") and - ("no").
  • The list of data about the registered pages has been improved so that the date of page registration in the catalogue and the date of the last change are listed for those URLs for which data are available.
  • Catalogue updating has been improved by automatic page generation with newly registered links and the note NOVO (Eng: NEW) for the pages registered within the last six days.
  • Preparations for "Izdanje 2001" have been carried out and the seventh anniversary of the servers has been celebrated.
  • The project was presented at the Free Computer System Days (Dani otvorenih računarskih sustava) - DORS 2000 in Zagreb, as well as at two international conferences: CARNet Users Conference CUC 2000 in Zagreb and Viable Telecommunications VITEL 2000 in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
  • The project was presented on television in "BIT", a program broadcast by the Croatian Radio and Television.
