  • 15. What’s improved in search?
    Search engines, of course
    Images/thumbnails help visually
    Authority, dates more likely to be used in titles
    Much more data, for different uses & users:
    contrast ArcGIS online with GLCF @UMD

  • 19. User challenge:
    When do you stop searching?
    For a co-worker?
    For your boss?
    For a publication?
    If you have to digitize it yourself!?!?!?!
    Could you tell someone else:
    Yes, I did a search
    Here is what I looked for
  • 20. Types of search tools
    Keeping your own hard drive…
    General search engines
    (Metadata) clearinghouses
    Data repositories (GeoCommons, Databasin)
    Data portals – regional, topic-based
    Inline to workflow (ArcGIS Online)
    Discussion lists
    Ask for help: in-person, Twitter, etc
    Others? Please list….
  • 21. Best Practices?
    Use a strategy – any strategy
    It’s okay to do a first quick pass, but you’ll probably need to redo it, and document it, in many cases
