    Description

    Data collected from an online needs assessment revealed that Web site visitors with an interest in wilderness seek several different types of information. In order to gain further insight into the process of Web use for wilderness information, a follow-up analysis was conducted. This analysis was exploratory in nature, with the goal of identifying information domains of interest to potential audiences and to determine why certain groups of individuals have different information needs. The data were factor analyzed to determine logical information domains. Six information domains were revealed that could be used as a guide for creating structure for a Web site containing wilderness information. Subsequent analysis to determine factors that contribute to cluster membership was inconclusive.
