Engineering Village Mashes Up GeoRef and Google Maps

Engineering Village (www.engineeringvillage.com), an Elsevier online search platform that provides database content and analysis for engineering researchers, announced the addition of the American Geological Institute’s GeoRef database to its content offerings. In addition, the new GeoRef database and Engineering Village’s existing GeoBase database have both been "mashed up" with Google Maps to create a unique results mapping tool.

The additions optimize geosciences research by plotting geographic locations that are included in GeoRef and GeoBase search results on a digital map to show at-a-glance the areas of the world associated with a specific research topic. By providing a powerful visualization of results, Engineering Village gives users an alternate way to extract value from information.

GeoRef provides Engineering Village with a comprehensive, in-depth history of geology and its subfields, featuring more than 2.9 million records of geosciences literature. Its coverage of North American geology dates back to 1785 and that of international geology dates back to 1933; referencing scholarly journals, books, maps, conference papers, reports, and theses. GeoRef compliments GeoBase, which is a multidisciplinary database supplying bibliographic information and abstracts for the earth sciences, including human geography, physical geography, environmental science, geology, and oceanography.

Using Google Maps, search results from these two databases can be easily navigated by zooming in, zooming out, moving around, or rolling over an icon to find out which location it represents and how many records are associated with that location.
