Abstract- Our efforts in bringing the Scanning Probe Microscope (SPM) live data available on the Web have becn succcssful. This work is bcing pursued under the aegis of the IN-VSEE project targeted to brini; SPM data live to community colleges, high school and other research labsklassrooms. We have further advarrccd this to provide the capability of remote operation of the SPM via the web. The truly remote operator can control many functions of the microscope with reascinable security and ease. The latter marks a milestone in use of the Web for truly interactive bi-directional communication involving feedback and control of an instrument. The architel:ture also incorporates an interactive "chat " channel among the observers and the openior(s) and compressed video delivery in separate windows. Further, since the SPM data is inherently 3-Dimensional, a plug-in has also been developed to display the live data as 3-Dimensional model, with support for zoom, pan, rotation, etc. Scanning Probe Microscope and TopsMetrix Corp. Scanning Probe Microscopes (SPM), such as scanning tunneling microscvpes (STM) and atomic-force microscapes (AFM), do nut produce 2D images lik
