Below you can find a number of additional examples of sector maps providing a complete picture of a specific sector: The first two include a possible third dimension to be added to the concept of a sector map.
Example 1 Installation technology
This sector map example shows the full variety of jobs in the installation technology sector. On top of the large variety in content of jobs, the third dimension adds the context to this variety: the type of product markets and clients that the companies work for.
Example 2 Metal working industry

Example 4 The beauty care sector
