The audience of a documentary film is the spectator of a sequence of images that follow each other without his control in a coherent space/time reality. Web documentaries use a model of exhibition, magazine, or map to organise their data in a perceived digital space and invite the audience to move through this data space and explore the documents. As a result, equivalents to temporal or continuity editing are almost absent in web documentaries. The audience proceeds through the material and retrieves information through participation in the digital space and through getting physically and cognitively engaged interacting with the interface.
