Full text search

Full-text search only covers sites in the demo archive that have been given public access by the content owner. There are usually many duplicates in the results list (versions of the same webpage with different dates or alternate URLs), some of which can be filtered out by turning on the Grouping option. The list can be further narrowed down according to the criteria on the left. Each line has a Show full post caption to display detailed technical metadata for that website. When you open a result, you can click the Toolbar button in the upper left corner to see statistics and link graphs for the archived site or domain.

With the Image search option you can also search for images, but this function is not yet as advanced as e.g. Google Images, and it’s a good idea to type the search query without an accent, because then you’ll find words in filenames, not just in metadata. Photos can also be projected onto a map based on geocoordinates in image files taken with a digital camera. Since there are still few such files in the public web archive, to try this you either need to search for something very general (eg. muzeum) or just type a * (asterisk) character after turning on the Geo search option. The center of the searched area can be relocated by clicking, and the radius of the circle can be changed by rewriting the Radius in km value.
