For the convenience of use, individual platform interfaces were created:
General Data, Region Needs, Implementation Progress, Humanitarian Operations, Events and Activities, Social and Economic Indicators.
A user has a possibility to access each of the above interfaces either from the main page of the platform, and directly from the Geoportal. (Figure 1.1)
Figure 1.1 Geoportal Interface. List of interfaces.
Interfaces operate various combinations of data arrays, that allows to analyze them individually within a selected narrow subject of interfaces, and in general, through 'General Data' and 'Social and Economic Indicators' interfaces. These interfaces permit the bird's-eye view of the situation with respect to all available data on the needs and recovery projects, and from the point of view of actual changes reflected in statistical data of indicators of public well-being socio-economic status, and of the level of available infrastructure in affected territories.
Geoportal main functional elements
Interface Control Panel.
Using the Control Panel, a user can enable/disable additional panels: Filters, Layers, Information, Table, and to generate reports, build diagrams, heat maps, and always see on the right key statistical indicators for each of the interfaces. (Figure 3.1)
Figure 3.1 Interface Control Panel.
Using the Filter panel, a user can have a possibility to sort out data (Region Needs, Humanitarian Needs, Projects under implementation, etc.) in accordance with a list of parameters represented by lists of subject-specific categories of items, their geographical location, progress of implementation, sources and types of financing, availability of information about tender procedure, about the type of a building and intensity of damages, the source of provided information, etc.
The filter on the right contains a quantitative indicator of items changing its value in accordance with engaged filters. The higher level of multi-level filters displays the sum of engaged categories of the lower level (Figure 3.2)
Figure 3.2 Amount of available number of projects in filters.
For convenience of the visual perception markers of items displayed on a map correspond with chosen markers of filters. (Figure 3.4)
Figure 3.4 Amount of available number of projects in filters and color marking of map's items by project implementation progress.
A marker color on a map corresponds to the marking of implementation progress of projects from a corresponding filter. (Figure 3.5)
Figure 3.5 Color marking of map items corresponds to values of Project Progress filter.
Filters are divided into separate categories as per attribute data.
A category of filters may have several levels unfolded by pressing + (plus) button and folded into a compact view after repeatedly clicked on - (minus) button (Figure 3.6)
Figure 3.6 Example of multi-level data filter structure.
Also, you can disable all chosen filters by means of one button located in the bottom of the Filters panel. (Figure 3.7)

Elements of the list in a panel have their attributive values and functional buttons in every interface.
When clicked on an element's name of a list, a panel with a detailed information about that element is opened.
Using the sorting function, a user has a possibility to sort out elements of a list both by the name, and by the date of creation.
The information panel in every interface reflects topical cards displaying needs/projects/humanitarian operations/activities and events, and their detailed information and examples are given in sections dedicated to individual interfaces.
A data card contains the full range of data about an item available at the time when the data base is being viewed, i.e. if any attributive data are missing than a card becomes shorter in its content, and if an item has been edited by a user with an adequate access permission, than the added information shall be reflected in the new wider scope.
The Report panel is common for 'General data', 'Implementation progress', 'Socioeconomic indicators' interfaces; it permits to generate a report using key criteria: territory, project categories, project status, type of financing, source of financing, and Project executive agency. (Figure 3.6.1)

Type of Need filter
Since the Region Needs interface combined two significant type of needs having different browsing scenarios through portal's interfaces in their lifetime - from arising, until redress - therefore this filter has appeared to separate humanitarian needs and needs in recovery. (Figure 4.1)
Figure 4.1 Type of need Filter
The Priority filter reflects the level of the actual priority of a specific current need for the Ministry of temporary occupied territories and internally displaced persons. In a time, the priority of a need may change, therefore this is a good filter for reflecting urgent needs for the nearest time for the most efficient cooperation. (Figure 4.2)
Figure 4.2 Priority Filter
The Influence filter reflects the degree of influence from recovery of a specific item onto the state of an administrative and territorial unit; that also lets to orient in significance of recovery in the most appropriate and necessary cases at corresponding levels of settlements in affected regions. (Figure 4.3)
