Using Classifications

Use classifications to assess your content with criteria relevant to you.

How to use Classifications

An important part of foresight work is assessing incoming signals and trends. In FIBRES, you can do this with Classifications. Once a Classification is set up, it can be found and used in the content cards.

  1. Open the Signal, Signal Cluster, Trend, or Megatrend you want to assess.
  2. Scroll down to Classifications.
  3. Select a value or values by clicking the buttons.

How to set up Classifications

Since Classifications are a customizable feature, they are always set up by our team for you. Don't hesitate to book a meeting to configure your Account for Classifications and other custom features, even during your free trial.

Examples of Classifications

Classifications can be customized to your needs. Here are some examples of Classifications we have implemented for our customers:

Impacted regions

Assess your content based on which geographical areas it impacts.


Phenomenon certainty

Assess the likelihood of the events taking place that your content describes.

Affected activities

Assess the parts of your organization and processes that your content affects.


Using Classifications as filters

You can use Classifications as filters in Discover, Network, and Radar to see only a selection of your data.

To filter your Radar based on your Classifications:

  1. Navigate to Radar.
  2. Click the filter icon.
  3. Scroll down to your Classifications.
  4. Select the values you want to filter for.


Once you select values, the Radar will show content that matches your filter. Filtered-out content will show up as blurred-out bubbles. To hide filtered-out content completely:

  1. Close the filter menu.
  2. Click the button Hide filtered.
