How to use the Map

Up one level



The NanoMed Map is based on the popular Google Map feature allowing an intuitive and smooth navigation in the map.


Navigate in the Map by using drag-and-drop technique: move the mouse cursor to an area of the map, hold down the left mouse button, and while keeping the mouse button held down, move the mouse cursor in the direction opposite of what you want to show on the map.


To zoom in and out with the mouse, you can use the mouse wheel between the two mouse buttons.

Moving the wheel forward will zoom in, and moving it backward will zoom out. If you do not have a mouse wheel on your mouse, you can zoom in and out using the navigation icons on the left side of Google Maps.


Night view: to switch to the night view, click on the night button on top right of the map. This night modus allows a more general and palpable view of the overall community.




The NanoMed Map offers you the possibility to search for specific actors according their addresses (or country), their names, their types of organisation, their application focus, or free-text keywords.


Select the criteria you would like to search and enter the text in the free-text box in the window on your left. A drop-down list with suggestions will appear to make your search easier.


Check or uncheck the boxes in order to filter the results and let appear the actors only in the specific categories you have chosen.


The map can also be replaced by the list of actors according your search by clicking on the "Show list" button. This modus may simplify your search for a particular actor as the list is sorted alphabetically.


A counter on the search window's bottom right indicates how many results corresponds to your current search.


To reset your search, click on the "reset search" button.
