The maps on this blog are created by LinkSViewer, a product of GroupScope, Inc. If some of the maps on the blog look a little fuzzy, it is because WordPress is shrinking them to fit the page. We’ll try to keep the distortion to a minimum, and you should always be able to click on the map to link to a live version on the LinkSViewer site.
In order to read them effectively you need to know what everything means. Most recent posts have a link to our FreeView product which have the legend embedded when clicking to the full-size map. Older posts and registered posts link to our Basic product which is available on a registration basis (free for a limited time). Here is the legend indicating the different shapes and colors of the nodes on the maps.
Now look at a network map. Here is the Relational Network Map for Google generated by LinkSViewer 1.2. Clicking on the image below provides the FreeView map in a new window. The below map only contains active companies and connected people, but you can compare the shapes and colors on the map to the shapes and colors from the legend. Hovering over each node in the FreeView map indicates obscured node titles. Clicking on each node provides basic company stats and links in the Information Window. Other map views and features are available from the FreeView or upon registration. Check it out!
For more information about reading the maps and LinkSViewer in general, please visit the LinkSViewer Tutorial Website - a valuable resource with illustrated examples from our sample map gallery. More features to come, we’ll keep everyone updated on the blog.
