GEOBASE

Easier to search Geographic Terms in GEOBASE

on Thu, 09/07/2017 - 12:06

GEOBASE researchers now have a faster, easier and more direct method of leveraging the geographic terms included in GEOBASE records. While geographic terms have always been searchable within the Expert Search form on Engineering Village, they are also now available on the Quick Search page. 

Geographic terms are used to describe the most important location information contained within a document.  These terms can describe very specific locations such as a city or broad territories like a continent or ocean.

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.
