(DI-4-1) Discovery review - Search page help text

Priority: desirable Milestone: NDG3
Component: discovery Version:
Keywords: Cc:


I think the text presented should be slightly amended to improve clarity and provide additional information. My suggestions are:

Free text search This search operates on the original XML records stored in the discovery database. You may choose to search on all fields or restrict your search to the author (dataset creator), or parameter fields. The search is not case sensitive and a wildcard * may be used.

Note: It is possible to get a return which does not appear to include your search term; as the html view does not reveal the entire XML content. A link to the original XML is available in the discovery record display to allow you to assess obscure matches.

Temporal coverage Limit your search for data within a specific time period. Catalogue entries that have some data within the range entered will be returned.

Source data providers Opt to search on all records or just those sourced from the NERC Data Centres.

Spatial search Use the map to click and drag a rectangular box to select your geographic area of interest. Tools also allow you to zoom and pan. Alternatively, enter the coordinates in the form provided. Catalogue entries that have some data within the bounding box will be returned.
