Guide to the Map
Please read this introduction to learn more about all functions of the map. In case any open questions remain or you would like to give us feedback, please do not hesitate to contact us.
The world map has a threefold structure: On the left is the actual map, on the upper right the filter functions and on the lower right five separate lists are automatically generated according to the map’s categories.
The map’s five categories are: Members (dark blue pins), partners (light blue pins), projects (green pins), publications (yellow pins), and events (purple pins).
On the left side, the map features pins in the map's five categories. A circle indicates that multiple pins are located in one geographical area. By clicking on a circle, the map zooms in and reveals the corresponding individual pins.
The map's filter function is structured in 5 click-boxes at the top and six drop-down menues below.
By checking one or multiple click-boxes, the map will show only pins of the selected categories. If you leave all click-boxes unchecked, the map will show pins of all categories.
Please use the drop-down menues to narrow down the results shown on the map to the left and in the list below. Each drop down has a ?-button next to it. Clicking on it will open up a box explaining each drop- down filter.
It is important to remember using the "Reset filter" function when beginning a new search, as all selections are saved until you click it.
If your browser does not reload and through this generate the map automatically, please use the "Send filter" button once you have selected your filters.
Each search will automatically generate a list in each of the map's five categories containing all the corresponding results found in our database. These lists can be found at the bottom of the right side.
If you click on one of the pins on the map, a small box appears containing details on the pin and a "more information" button. Clicking on this button will open up a detail page in a separate tab.
The same information in each pin's box on the map can also be found in each entry of the lists at the bottom of the right side.
