Choosing a college is daunting to all high school students looking to broaden their horizons and further their education. Now there is a new tool available to assist seekers in refining their searches using map search technology.

Virtual Strategy Magazine brought this exciting news to our attention in their article, “, a Semantic College Search Engine, Announces Search by Map.” Collegeseekr leverages existing search technology and page layout. What makes them different is the access to collegeseekr’s database of over 180,000 college listings by improving the control a user has over search results.

A quality database that was indexed with a standards-based taxonomy is the best way to ensure findability. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies.
