Using the "Search Terms" field

Basic search

Behavior of the search engine
  • The search is carried out in the NAVWARNs version linked to the current language of the search form.
  • The words separated by a space will give as results the NAVWARNs containing at least one of the words entered in the request.
  • The search engine is not case sensitive.
  • The search engine ignores accents.

Advanced search

Search for an exact phrase

Use the quotation marks to get the search results for an exact term or phrase.

Example
  • "Port of Quebec" gives as results the NAVWARNs containing the term Port of Quebec.

Wildcard characters

The asterisk (*) is used to replaced multiple characters or a word. The asterisk can be used several times if there are several words to replace.

Examples
  • buo* gives as results the NAVWARNs containing the term buoy.
  • "buoy *" gives as results the NAVWARNs containing the term buoy missing, buoy adrift, etc.
  • "buoy * *" gives as results the NAVWARNs containing the term buoy 5 extinguished, etc.

The question mark (?) is used to replace one, and only one, character.

Example
  • 495? could be used to find all the NAVWARNs associated with sea charts whose number begins with the three digits 495.

Boolean search

Boolean search allows logical equations to find NAVWARNs.

The following boolean operators are valid
  • AND : Results containing both keywords.
  • OR : Results containing at least one of the keywords.
  • NOT or - : The results will not contain the keyword that follows the operator.
  • Parentheses : The search begins with the keywords inside the parentheses, then the keywords outside the parentheses.
Examples
  • Canada AND port will give as results the NAVWARNs containing Canada and port.
  • river OR gulf will give as results the NAVWARNs containing the term river, gulf, or both. The result is the same as if a space had been used.
  • -buoy will give as results the NAVWARNs that do not contain the term buoy.
  • (river OR gulf) AND (buoy OR whale) search first the terms river or gulf, then the terms buoy or whale and find the NAVWARNs that contain both expressions.
