The Covve maps allow you to explore and analyse your entire network in a simple yet powerful way, enabling you to gain newfound insights about your network.
This article provides an overview of the World maps however the same interactions apply in the industry map as well.
In this mode the maps will show between one and six pie charts, representing each of the continents.
Each pie chart can give access to a number of data points as shown below.
A) This label shows the continent that this chart represents as well as the grouping that has been applied. In this example we are looking at North America, grouped by Industry.
B) This is the total number of contacts in North America. Note, this total will include all contacts in North America, even if they have no industry
C) The "health meter" shows the proportion of your contacts that have data relating to the group that you have selected. In this example, the health meter shows us that of the 200 contacts in North America, 190 of them have an Industry assigned to them
D) The chart shows the top three segments with the most contacts. All other contacts are grouped within the last segment. In this example, 76 contacts have the primary industry "Business Services".
E) The fourth segment of each chart represents all other segments (excluding the top three). In this example, the fourth segment includes 9 contacts in Lower Education, 5 in Music, 4 in Sciences and a few others (scroll to see the rest).
F) Hovering over any of the segments will expose the "View contacts" icon. Clicking on this will show a list of the contacts belonging to the given segment. In this example it will list the four contacts in the Sciences industry.
In this example we have grouped North American contacts by Industry. You can change this by hovering over the North America label.
A) Clicking on the "View Contacts" icon will provide a list with all contacts in North America.
B) Clicking on the "Zoom in" icon will zoom your map into North America.
C) Clicking on the "Group by" icon allows you to change the grouping that is applied to this, and all other, charts. You can group by location, industry, seniority and tag.
Continent and country view
You can zoom in from the world map to further explore a specific part of your network. Lets say that in this case you're looking for contacts in Asia, so you've zoomed in to Asia from the world map.
A) This is the pie chart for Asia. It is the same as the respective chart in the world map and shows the top three segments in Asia plus a fourth segment for "Other". In this example we see that we are grouping Asia by Location. We have 98 contacts in total of which 40 are in Japan, 38 in China and 10 in India.
B) Each of the three segments of the central pie chart are further expanded and analysed. Here we can see that China is further grouped by Industry and Seniority.
Hovering over the pie chart for China allows us to further explore the network.
A) This label shows the segment that this chart represents as well as the grouping that has been applied. In this example we are looking at China grouped by Industry and then by Seniority.
B) The inner segments of the pie chart represent the first level of grouping. Here we can see that of the 38 contacts in China, 8 are in the Insurance industry.
C) The outer segments provide further grouping. Here we can see that of the 8 contacts in Insurance, 5 are Senior and 3 are mid-level.
In this example we have grouped Chinese contacts by Industry and Seniority. You can change this by hovering over the China label.
A) Clicking on the "View Contacts" icon will provide a list with all contacts in China.
B) Clicking on the "Zoom in" icon will zoom your map into China for further analysis.
C) Clicking on the "Group by" icon allows you to change the grouping that is applied to this, and all other, charts.
