Knoogle Iran (and see what you get)

magnifying glassKNOOGLE IRAN is at http://goo.gl/Ap67Re. Click it here and see what it can tell you about city transport and sustainability in Iran.

Knoogle New Mobility 3.0 is the third iteration of a power search engine originally developed by EcoPlan and World Streets in cooperation with the SMART program of the University of Michigan.

Use it like Google, but . . . the great advantage over the usual Google search is that (a) it is far more compact and focused in its offerings, because (b) it scans and reports on the work and offering of the carefully selected key sources and sites that are leading the way (approximately 800 as of this date).

Specifically tailored to help policy makers, local government, researchers, NGOs, students, activists, consultants, concerned citizens and the media keep up efficiently with the work and activities of the leading international groups, programs and sources leading the field of sustainable transport and sustainable cities worldwide.

We invite you to test Knoogle to view the results of a quick unified scan based on your selected key words, combing through more than one thousand carefully selected institutions, programs and sources that we view as leading the way in their work and competence in our heavily challenged sector world-wide.

COUNTRY-PLUS: if you carry out a country search, say on Iran, AND then would like to see more on, say, “BRT in Iran”, all you have to do is add the word BRT or other key words after the word China in the Knoogle box.

CONVERGENCE: Knoogle has been developed as part of a project getting underway – Convergence: Toward a General Theory of Transport in Cities — in which we are looking into ways to create tighter linkages and better coordination between the fast expanding number of programs and agencies that are concerned with issues of sustainable transportation, climate, environment, etc. For full background on this project in process contact eric.britton@ecoplan.org. And if you wish to get involved or contribute in any way please get in touch.
