GeoScienceWorld Launches Map-Based Discovery Platform

By Africa S. Hands

From GeoScienceWorld:

Debuting this month, OpenGeoSci (http://opengeosci.org) is a free, map-based discovery interface providing geographic searching for more than 300,000 maps, cross-sections, charts, tables, and other high-value content from GeoScienceWorld (GSW) publications.

Search results can be filtered by journal, topical category, publication date, zooming in on the map, or an area filter. Selecting a result on the map will open a content box that displays the data result, caption information, citation information, and a link to the original publication. GSW expects to add article data from its new eBooks Collections in 2014.
