The table can be viewed in full screen mode by clicking on the "View larger version" in the bottom right hand corner. The table will open in a new window, unless you have a personal setup on your computer, where you have requested a specific, other functionality.

You can turn the visibility of a column off by clicking on the "Hide fields" in the top left corner of the table. The button allows you to choose which column that are displayed in the table, if the symbol to the left of the column name is green, it is on, and if the symbol is gray, it is turned off, while you view the table. Turning them on again can wither happen by clicking on the same button and turning them on again by using the sliders.

Filtering the data.

Filtering allows you to see specific records (rows), based on conditions, the conditions are chosen by changing 3 different parameters (a column title, an operator, your specific input) for example, if you wish to see all the rows where the technique is weaving, your condition would be: "where technique is exactly weaving", this will give you 182 rows of data, that matches your search. Technique will be selected first, then an operator will be available to choose and last you will be able to turn on "weaving". If more than one technique is chosen, in this case, the data shown will be those rows where there are more techniques in the same row, and in this case there are none.

Grouping by topics.

If you would like to divide the data into separate groups, based on topic, you would be able to do so by using the functionality of "Group" located on the top bar of the table. By grouping by "country" for example you would be able to see how many records (rows) there are from each country.
