Improvements in the central search facility

First week of July the search interface and results tabulation was updated. The search interfaces has received

  • improved support in the map search (including map projections),
  • the list of institutions is made more manageable,
  • all fileds are expanded by default but can be collapsed by the user,

results tabulation now includes

  • a map presentation of location of datasets
  • improved visualisation of time series which now includes dynamic plotting (including readout of values)
  • improved data dump to CSV

Updates to the search facility for datasets

The search interface has been updated. Now the map used in the search box supports more map projections, including a southern and northern hemisphere map. Furthermore, the search interface has been further restructured and prepared for more faceted searchs (e.g. by institutions) in the future. The business logic supproting transformations has also received some upgrades, but many of these will first be fully visible once the backend services are updated as well.
