Browsing the map

You can browse the listed skills and facilities from a map, to see how far you would need to travel to use a company.

Companies are represented by blue bubbles on the map. If there is a number on the bubble, it indicates how many companies are available at that location. Click on a bubble to zoom in to the area and see the details for that company.

You can move your view of the map in two dimensions. To move the map, do one of the following:

  • Click and drag the map
  • Click the up arrow to move north
  • Click the down arrow to move south
  • Click the right arrow to move east
  • Click the left arrow to move west

Additionally, you can zoom in or out on the map by clicking pressing the + or - keys. To centre and zoom in on a location, double click the location.


If you don't find any results for your query:

  • Make sure all words are spelled correctly
  • Use full words rather than abbreviations
  • Try different keywords
  • Try more general keywords
