It’s been quite a while since the last update, but there has been quite a bit of progress – and a substantial change of direction.

First, I because of lack of progress, I had re-think this project. It was just way too ambitious for a first step. I had to trim the 250-plus data points back quite a bit.

While I still plan for the same end-product, with 250-plus data points, it would taken possibly years before all the automation and data extraction would be available. So, instead, I settled for a more simple version which I can implement for use much sooner, then expand.

In fact, a trial version is ready. And although there is only 393 UFO sighting records to search through, I feel it’s a good first step to work out the kinks and get some feedback on the system.

So check out the UFO Research Database here.

Over the next few weeks and months, I will be adding more UFO sighting records to the database. Once there is a substantial amount of data in the database, I will work on adding more features and searchable data points, one at a time.

Comments, feedback, and suggestions are encouraged.
