This paragraph deals with the presentation of the actual map and the possibilities for interaction it provides. Right now we see several options to improve the design of the integrated world map:

* Experiment with different pin forms: A future problem that might occur is that the map will look too crowdy. Therefore it might be reasonable to use less dominant pin forms, e.g. in the form of needles.
* Fix the basic layer of the world map: Right now one can switch the map to the left and the right and it appears another world map appears, without any pins. This affects usability and bears the risk that a user gets lost on the screen. Therefore the basic map layer should be fixed.
* Drop down lists for filter options: Right now filtering is done by rather large lists of control boxes. checkboxes. Instead of this, drop down menues should be used to attain a more elegant and lean look and feel of the site.
* Within the check box lists (respectively the drop down menues) items must be listet alphabetically.
* The search functionality should also be included also in the map, so that it is possible to perform a query without leaving the map.
* Right now information about ressources are displayd in drupal default pop-up fields, which are neither very good looking nor easy to use. One solution to improve the display would be to open a field at the left or right margin of the map by clicking on a pin, which shows the relevant information. Within the remaining space the map should be displayed with the activated pin in its center.
* Experiment with different pin forms: A future problem that might occur is that the map will look too crowded. Therefore it might be reasonable to use less dominant pin forms, e.g. in the form of needles.
