In addition to exploring your network on the familiar world map you can also view them on the unique Covve industry map.

The industry map provides an entirely new business-relevant perspective to help you arrive at entirely new insights.

The industry map functions in the same way as the world map and is designed to reflect the sectors, sub-sectors and industries of your contacts.

At the highest level, the industry map visualises your contacts across the six sectors:

a) Arts, entertainment and media

b) Business, finance and technology

c) Academia and sciences

d) Life and consumer

e) Public sector and not for profit

f) Industrial, trade and rural

You can then zoom in and explore each sector. Here we can see the Sciences sector with its characteristic CERN symbol (the Covve industry maps include dozens of relevant industry references - can you spot them?!)

What is the Covve industry tree?

The Covve industry tree has three levels:

  • Sector (such as "Academia & Sciences")
  • Sub-sector (such as "Film")
  • Industry (such as "Film Production")

Each of your contacts can be assigned up to three industries. These are then accessible through My Contacts filtering, your maps and search.


You can also navigate your contacts' industries on Covve's unique Industry Map. The Industry Map has been designed to give you a visual reference for industry information and allow you to assess your network at a glance:

In case you want to assign a sub-sector to a contact you can find the equivalent generic industry. For example, to assign a contact to the business services sub-sector you can select the industry "Business services (other)"
