Bill Dollins caught something we changed when we released our new UI.
When you’ve got thousands and thousands of datasets, does it really matter that you know there are possibly millions of choices? Take Google for example:
90 million records? What’s the point of showing a user that many results? The reality of the situation is that you want to get your result in the first two pages of any result. Anything more and a user gives up. So yea, we’ve got lots of data in WeoGeo, but I sure as heck don’t want you to scroll through every single one looking for your data. That’s why we give you a map to refine your search.
