New Product Announcement-->Illustrata
CSA illustrata, natural sciences
This is sooo cool you have to try it to believe it. Let's say a student/prof wants a graphic to illustrate grizzly bear range in the Rockies....well after a quick search they get a nice little map.
Then, what if they want an actual picture of a grizzly bear....well no problem.
We know that both students and instructors have a hard time finding graphics to use in the classroom, as well, the graphics in articles often contain key information that isn't captured in indexing and therefore searching. So I encourage you all to give this one a try and become more familiar with it.
PS: I did a search for "big foot", alas no pictures.
