The Explorer was previously called Navigation Pane/Tree or
sometimes Navigator Pane/Tree.

Figure 11.1. Overview of the explorer
The explorer allows the user to view the structure of the
model from a number of predefined perspectives. It also allows
the user to define their own perspetives for custom exploring
of the model.
An important feature, related to the cognitive psychology
ideas behind ArgoUML is that not all model elements are necessarily
shown in all perspectives. Rather, the perspectives are used to
implement hiding of uninteresting parts of the model.
