"The Geofacets tool is designed to search for, and extract, maps, sections and other geographically-referenced geoscientific data from a very large and growing volume of published content. The interface is both interactive and intuitive, using a combination of a GoogleEarth map-based browser and a text-based search tool to capture georeferenced data and images which can then be collated into an interpretation. Search results are presented as thumbnail images with links to their corresponding read-only PDFs, full text (for subscribers) and pay-per-view (e.g. via Science Direct), and selected maps can be gathered for use in GIS software. All maps are accessible and downloadable, with over 140,000 Elsevier and Lyell Collection maps being tagged with georeferenced coordinates available as GeoTIFFs for subsequent analysis. The Lyell Collection is an outstanding resource covering the two centuries of GSL’s existence. Providing access via Geofacets significantly increases the value of the search tool, as well as increasing exposure for authors of Lyell content."--The Geological Society" website, viewed August 15, 2016
