With this online tool users can discover how digital social innovation projects are distributed and clustered, what fields they focus on, and how they connect into a range of big and small networks – all with real-time data.

The tool features three main views, each one looking at organisations and projects from a different perspective: map view, network view and cluster view.

The first time a user lands on the explorer, a quick onboarding gives to him/her the context. In each view, the selection of an object opens a panel containing some detail related to the chosen item.

The map view show how the organisations are spread across Europe: it's fully interactive and has three different resolutions based on the zoom level. A search organisation feature is implemented.

The cluster view invites the user to group and subdivide projects by different criteria (e.g. country, technology, social area), allowing him/her to make comparisons.
