This tool provides a number of methods for exploring a database of ecosystem service mapping projects.
On starting the tool all projects in the database are shown both in the Map view and the Details view.
These views can be selected using the buttons at the top of the screen.
The displayed projects can be filtered using specific criteria from the Browse menu or by using keywords from the Search menu
Both of these menus are accessed using the buttons at the top left of the screen.
At all times the list of active keywords is shown in the Keywords bar below the buttons Map, Details and Contact.
Selection of additional keywords is cumulative by default.
Keywords can be removed by simply clicking on them.
The selector in the Keywords bar can be toggled between All Keywords and Any Keyword.
The default All Keywords narrows the displayed projects from all projects towards no projects by excluding projects which do not match the filter keywords.
The alternative Any Keyword broadens the displayed projects from no projects towards all projects by including projects which do match the filter keywords.
