CC SearchCC Search is a tool that allows openly licensed and public domain works to be discovered and used by everyone. Creative Commons, the nonprofit behind CC Search, is the maker of the CC licenses, used over 1.4 billion times to help creators share knowledge and creativity online.
CC Search searches across more than 300 million images from open APIs and the Common Crawl dataset. It goes beyond simple search to aggregate results across multiple public repositories into a single catalog, and facilitates reuse through features like machine-generated tags and one-click attribution.Creative Commons
Making it easier to discover datasetsSimilar to how Google Scholar works, Dataset Search lets you find datasets wherever they’re hosted, whether it’s a publisher's site, a digital library, or an author's personal web page.
Location-aware search with Apache Lucene and SolrWhether looking for the nearest coffee shop on a GPS-enabled smartphone, nearby friends via a social-networking site, or all trucks within the city delivering a certain product, more and more people and businesses are using location-aware search services. Creating such services has often been the domain of expensive proprietary solutions and geospatial experts. Recently, however, the popular open source search library, Apache Lucene, and the powerful Lucene-powered search server, Apache Solr, have added spatial capabilities. Lucene and Solr committer Grant Ingersoll walks you through the basics of spatial search and shows you how to leverage its capabilities to power your next location-aware application.Grant Ingersoll
