A new search engine for finding data and statistics!

logo_barsLooking for data? Need that perfect statistic for your paper?

Try the new search engine, Zanran!

According to the website: “Zanran helps you find ‘semi-structured’ data on the web. This is the numerical data that people have presented as graphs and tables and charts. For example, the data could be a graph in a PDF report, or a table in an Excel spreadsheet, or a barchart shown as an image in an HTML page. This huge amount of information can be difficult to find using conventional search engines, which are focused primarily on finding text rather than graphs, tables and bar charts. Put more simply: Zanran is Google for data.”
