The LEO Network advanced search engine supports many filtering options, as well as many options for viewing and downloading search results.
The most common way to limit your search results is to specify one or more search terms. The search engine performs a full-text search based on your search terms. Some example searches follow.
To search for a single word, simply enter it. For example:
To search for multiple terms, enter them separated by a space. For example:
which is the same as:
dead | whale
Note that the query above will find posts containing the term whale or dead. However, posts contain both terms will score higher in the search ranking.
It is also possible to search for posts containing both terms, like this:
dead + whale
To find an exact phrase, surround it with quotation marks. For example:
The query above will find posts containing the phrase dead whale, but posts containing only dead or whale will not be included.
Parentheses can be used to create complex queries. For example:
(elk | deer | moose | caribou | reindeer) + "wasting disease"
The query above will find posts containing the name of an ungulate, plus the exact phrase "wasting disease."
Finally, note that the search engine is not inflection-sensitive - for example, it treats plural and singular versions of words as being the same.
By default, search results are limited to only first-person LEO Observations. Using the drop-down menu, you may change this to only News Articles, or both News Articles and Observations.
The Filters button allows you to specify addition filtering options, such as:
The results of your search query may be viewed in a variety of formats:
In addition, search results may be downloaded in a number of different formats:
