NEW YORK, May 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --

- New Mapping Tool Plots Geographical Search Results on a Digital Map, Providing Further Insight Into the Geographic Context of Results

Engineering Village, an Elsevier online search platform that provides database content and analysis for engineering researchers, announced today 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.

"The new maps allow users to look at something other than standard citations and get a feel for the global nature of the research community," said Colby Ellis, president of Elsevier's Engineering and Technology Division. "This and other customer-driven features help Engineering Village improve the research experience, giving researchers the competitive advantage they need."

Mapping Specific Database Search Results

GeoRef provides Engineering Village with a comprehensive, in-depth history of geology and its subfields, featuring over 2.9 million records of geosciences literature. Its coverage of North American geology dates to 1785 and that of international geology dates to 1933; referencing scholarly journals, books, maps, conference papers, reports, and theses.

GeoRef compliments GeoBase, which is a unique multidisciplinary database supplying bibliographic information and abstracts for the earth sciences, including human geography, physical geography, environmental sci
