GEOBASE and GeoRef Enhanced Map Features

on Wed, 05/31/2017 - 10:08

Location based information adds additional insights to basic research and data analysis. GEOBASE and GeoRef users have access to updated map features on the Engineering Village platform. The Show map feature enables users to put their research results into geographical context by visually representing the location of the document topics retrieved via a search within GEOBASE or GeoRef. Researchers can click on any of the map points and refine their search to that location. Additionally, maps have been updated to include a high quality terrain map and links to the GeoFacets database.

Customize your output with new sort features

on Thu, 05/11/2017 - 13:18

Engineering Village has added the ability for users to select up to 10 different ways to sort records before downloading, printing or emailing records.

What is new?
Users of Engineering Village can now sort their output in a way to make record analysis easier to and keep their research organized.  For example, a user who wants to identify all papers by a specific author within their selected records set can sort by author name, and then output the records in the sorted format.

Numeric search enables deep investigations across Ei Compendex & Inspec on Engineering Village

on Thu, 02/09/2017 - 14:49

New functionality allows searches by meters, temperature, data bits and more than 60 other measurement units

By Marilynn Larkin

Summary: Engineers will no longer be stymied by the many ways numerical data appears in the literature. Forget about searching on qualitative terms such as “big,” “short,” “heavy” or “shallow.” Numeric search—new functionality for Compendex and Inspec on Engineering Village—lets you search directly on the specific terms that matter to you, and receive standardized results in the format of your choice.

Streamline your searches

Numerical data is often used by
