The 'Info Panel' of the Info Window
The Information Panel is the default content for the Info Window for any map, and always displays the information for one of the Target Nodes when a new map is opened. You can click on any node in the map to display the information for that node in the Info Panel.


Information Panel Link
This link brings up the Information Panel in the Information Window, as seen in the image above. The Controls Panel (read more below) may also be displayed in this same window. If you are viewing the Controls Panel and are interested in returning to the Information Panel to examine more information about the nodes in the map, you could either click on this link, or you could click on one of the nodes in the map, which would cause the information for that node to be displayed and replace the Controls Panel.

This link brings up the Controls Panel in the Information Window. In the image above the Information Window is displaying the Information Panel. If you are viewing a map and node information is currently displayed in the Information Window, and you would like to use one of the manipulation features found in the Controls Panel then you would click on this link to display those features.

Help Panel Link
This link brings up a basic help screen in the Information Window with links to this tutorial and a link to the GroupScope contact information.

1st Node Type
After the name of the node whose information is being displayed (in the above image it is Google) there is a banner that is the same color as the node being displayed, and within that banner is the type of node ('Active Public Company' above for Google). Some groups (companies, people, investors) have only one node type, but others have two. Very often there are companies that also make investments (like Google above), so they have two node types in the system. Also common are individuals who are both individual investors and board members, with different node types for each. If the company, investor, or person is represented by more than one node type, then the information for the second node type is displayed just below the first. Both nodes need not be present in the current map for both informations to be displayed.

1st Node Type Hyperlinks
The hyperlinks for each node type are found just below the banners. There are three options here:

1) Show Relational Map
Makes the node whose information is currently displayed into the only target node for a new map. This map replaces whatever map is currently being viewed. Try right-clicking on this link and selecting 'open in new tab' or 'open in new window' to browse this new Relational map in a new tab or window without closing the current one.

2) Add/Remove from Map
If you click on a node that is not a target node in the map you will have the option to 'Add' it to the map. Adding a node to the map means that you are turning it into an additional Target Node and adding its complete network to the current map, creating a combined network map for two or more nodes. If you click on a node that is already a target node (in a map with 2 or more target nodes) you will have the option of 'Removing' it from the map, which will make that node a normal node again rather than a target node, and collapse that section of the network. You cannot remove the target node from a map with only 1 target node.

3) LinkSV Summary
Click on this link to open up the summary page for this node in Link Silicon Valley. This page contains additional in-depth information about the node that is not found in the maps or in the Information Window.

1st Node Type Information
Depending on the type of node there is different informatin available. Company node information includes details like Start Year, Total Capital Raised, and a short description of the company to name a few. Investor information includes total number of investments and number of active investments. Person information includes details like current and former board and management positions, background and experience affiliations, and universities attended.

2nd Node Type
This is just like the 1st Node Type found above, but appears when a group or person has two node types associated with it (like Google above is both a company and investor).

2nd Node Type Links
This is just like the 1st Node Type Links found above, but these links function for the 2nd Node Type. If you click on the 'Add to Map' link in this section as shown for Google above, you will add the Google Investor node to the map that already contains the Google company node. This will give you a complete view of the Google network.

2nd Node Type Information
This is just like the 1st Node Type Information found above, but appears when a group or person has two node types.
