Map Browsing Filters

Choose which browsing filters you would like displayed at the bottom of your map (Category, Greater Community Intention, Associated Users, Service/Opportunity).

The selected filters will filter the map video entries selected in the following Content section.

For example, choosing 'Associated Users' would allow the map's video content to be filtered by the users associated with the videos. Greater Community Intention would allow filtering by the videos' intention (ex. Gardening & Permaculture, Party & Celebration, Sharing & Experiencing, etc)
