A search engine is available on the Homepage and on the Data page (menu Data >>Data sets) to retrieve selected results. These researches are implemented in two different processes:
- Quick search:
Users need to enter the term(s) in the text line and the search engine will suggest all datasets containing this free text. If no such words are entered, the search engine will display the entire list of datasets.
- Search by filters:
If users wish to restrict the search results, they can add the various filters at the top of the Data - Datasets page: Organisations, Categories, Tags, Licence, Author, Last Modified and Format.
More than one filter can be activated at the same time and the returned matches are then updated according to the activated or deactivated filters.
At the same time, users can sort results by relevance, title (ascending and descending), publication date (descending and ascending), modification date (descending and ascending) and most frequently consulted.
