Data-Planet Statistical Ready Reference Released to Production

September 13, 2013 - Data-Planet™ is delighted to announce that the new Data-Planet Statistical Ready Reference interface is out of beta and released to production. The release follows further development undertaken in response to input obtained from 5,502 user sessions across 108 organizations during June through August of 2013.

Based on evaluation of that feedback, the basic search front screen has been modified and several new capabilities added:

  • Category, International, and State Navigation Tabs --Use these to quickly discover overview statistics by subject or geography
  • Map Navigation -- Make quick search selections by clicking on geographic entities in a map.
  • Data-Planet Statistical Snapshots --- Generated daily, a snapshot overview of topical indicators has been added on the front screen.  Each Snapshot has a DOI and links to related statistics mapped from the Data-Planet controlled vocabulary.
  • DataSheet enhancements include the option to provoke a new search and refinement of Related Content categories.
  • Search results are no longer limited to the top 500.
  • The type-ahead feature in basic search has been further refined to provide very precise searching of the Data-Planet repository.
