Sorting and filtering data offers
You can sort the results of your search, as well as all offers (“View all”), and refine them by using filters.Sort
Use the selection menu to sort your search results by relevance, topicality, and preference.
You can also filter your search results by clicking on a filter above the search results and defining your preferred parameters:
- Formats, period, license types, topics, more filters
Set one or more checkmarks in the filter selection menus. Next to each option, the number of corresponding available offers is displayed.
With this filter, you can limit the search results according to time:
As soon as you click on one of the date fields, two calendar views (current month) will open. Define the desired period by
- using the arrow buttons to choose the month in the current year and selecting your start and end date in these months.
- If your desired period is more than a year, click on the month in the first calendar view – you will see a list with years. Select a year, then a new list will open showing the months in this year.
- The first day of the selected month is your starting point. Proceed as before to select the end point in the second calendar. The last day of the month selected there is your end point. By clicking on a date in the month views, you can then define a specific start and end date.
Depending on the size of your screen, one or more filters can be seen. The remaining filters can always be found in “Other filters”. To further refine very large numbers of results, click on “More filters” at the right-hand end of the bar.
This will open an overlay with additional filters, with which you can further refine very large numbers of results. You can open the input option for the respective filter by setting the slider to “ON”.
With this filter, you can limit the search results to the spatial reference of the data contained within those offers: to do this, zoom in on and move the displayed map using the cursors as well as “+” and “–”.
Confirm the selection with “Apply filter”. Click on “Cancel” at the bottom of the overlay to reject the “More filters” settings. The overlay closes and you are returned to the page with the (if applicable, filtered) offers.
