Abstract: The Access Grid supports collaboration between geographically distributed groups, by allowing each group’s local node to connect to one of several shared virtual venues. We have explored ways of extending the Access Grid Toolkit version 2, specifically: to integrate a collaborative mobile pollution monitoring and visualisation application; and to allow immersive virtual reality interfaces to be used as nodes. In this paper we report our experiences and evaluate the integration approaches available, in particular with reference to application sharing, based on: new node services interacting with venue media streams; toolkit-supported shared applications; and external applications coordinated via service URLs or shared data files.
