As a test I Googled "chimborazo data":
The 5th entry down is the project archive page on Unavco's RAMADDA
server for a Terrestrial LiDAR Scan (TLS) field project:
Now, Googling "chimborazo lidar":
The first hit is a Unavco science highlight web page (which of course
does not point to the archive):
And the archive page doesn't show up at all (a top level page does show
up) even though it has the word "lidar" in it.
Googling with the TLS acronym:
Gives the archive page as the #1 hit. Likewise "tls unavco":
And one more -
Googling chimborazo "lidar data" gives a date range search results page
on RAMADDA as the first hit:
This is the result of RAMADDA adding a link to a date search from any
entry that has a date range, e.g.:
So, here is a case where we have a fairly rich collection of words,
images, links and data yet the search results are all over the place.
