NGI Community Map Help

The Next Generation Internet (NGI) Community Map displays NGI actors, i.e. organisations/companies that currently participate or are willing to participate in the NGI initiative.

Initiatives are displayed with a red pin. To view details about an initiative, click on a red pin and the details are shown on the left sidebar in the same way as the details of an actor.
