Data Location


When using the website, you can enter the name of a company to search. A record of places will appear and the year the company has begun. However the data is not able to be downloaded in PDF or CSV format.

Entering a space as the search term can bring up the whole database, although small search terms such as one character tend to interfere with the CSS/HTML styling of search results.

It is also difficult to make multiple searches in one session without refreshing the page in between.

Reviewer comments

Added a bit of extra detail on how to browse the full database.
