CiNaViz allows you to visualize the names of cities and other geographic locations in Europe. On the left, you can control which cities and/or locations are shown:
Type in the name or the part of names you are looking for (all searches are case insensitive). You can add up to three search strings at the same time, separated by a semicolon (;). Variants of city names are not possible at the moment (for example, the database knows "Köln" but not "Cologne"). Hit "Execute Search" to start the query.
|Exact: Searches for names which are matching exactly, for example a search for "Hamburg" will find only "Hamburg" in the north of Germany|
|Contains: Finds all names which are containing the given string, for example search for "ava"|
|Ends with: Only names which are ending with the given string are found: searching for the three strings "bach" (red), "beck" (green) and "bek" (bek). The exactly serch string was "bach;beck;bek".|
|Starts with: The name has to start with the given string: "Sankt " (mention the space in the search string)|
|Only Cities: When checked, only city names are included in the search (default). When deactivated, also other geographic locations are included|
You can select which marker should be used to display a location on the map. A small "Circle" is choosen ba default, "Pin" is the standard marker from Google maps. "Circle transparent" uses is again a circle, but it is half transparent. This last option is useful to distinguish areas of different density. On the other hand, "Circle transparent" needs a lot of computing performance on the client side, so use this option with care when your machine is an older one.
Select for which European countries the search should be executed. Default is "All" which inlcudes all countries in the database.
