Now that we know the structure of the Explore view, let's dissect the various filtration paths.
So how to filter the original set of viewers in Explore?
The most obvious way is using the search fields in the viewers’ list.
As for the locations list, it was a conscious decision not to add search fields, because we thought that would unnecessarily complicate the filtration at this phase.
However, we exposed a subtle filtration path, using the links in the location column. Clicking on these links will apply a filter showing only the viewers in the clicked location.
Moving to the more graphical path, the map. Similar to the overview, the map has two interaction modes. The default is the drill down, so clicking on the US, for example, would load the country’s map with its highlighted states. However, switching to filtration mode, clicking on a region would apply a filter showing only viewers in the clicked region.
The final path and the most subtle one is through the metrics panel.
Clicking on various charts in the metrics panel would apply a corresponding filter as well. For example, clicking on a slice in the quality of experience pie chart would only show viewers who reported the selected quality of experience.
