“We were extremely impressed with Data-Planet. It seems to have done (nearly) everything right. It has culled some of the best public datasets available, did an outstanding job of normalizing the data for a seamless browse and search experience, provides superb value-added features, including the overlay and calculation, and is well-thought-out and intelligently designed throughout. The intense attention to quality, clarity, and detail is evident, and the online help and assistance pages are excellent as well.” –The Information Advisor’s Guide to Internet Research
