First of all we get a summary of the results which is divided into the categories addresses, services, info, wiki and metadata.


In the category "addresses" five results for the search term "Wittlich" could be found, because there are several data sets with different spatial extents. For example "Wittlich, Stadt" covers the area of Wittlich city and "Bernkastel-Wittlich" covers the area of Bernkastel-Wittlich county.

By clicking an element you will be referred directly to the map view.

We choose the entry "Wittlich (Wohnplatz)" in the category "addresses". The map viewer is showing up and the map is centered and zoomed to the district of Wittlich. By using the back-button of the web browser we can go back to the search results.
