Visual mapping of search results--online and much cooler than before

Grokker is now available online. You don't have to download the app onto your machine. This version is a more sophisticated than the ones I've seen in the past. If you hover the mouse over one of the squares it pops up mini-windows with some meta-data about the hit. Click on a hit and it pulls up a column on the right where you can see more info about it and link straight out.

Try this search

Kpelle are an ethnic group in Liberia, WEST AFRICA. Try out the "Show tools" at the bottom. I like being able to limit by year. For the "find within the map," the word 'moot.' It will bring up a tiny set.

I think I like this. It's kind of growing on me.
