I have a website where registered users can add their vehicles (cars, motorcycles, trucks), track their expenses and connect them to different venues (filling stations, repair shops). So I want an area of the website called "explore" most likely, where everyone could go and browse (list) users, vehicles and venues to see some statistics.
All of them have different kinds of filters (for users it could be username match, or for vehicles it could be make/model/engine/tramission/etc), sorting options (like for users it will be reputation, registration date).
The main issue I have is I don't know how to present a good landing page to this explore section where users can get the idea that they can browse the different entities easily. Right now I'm thinking of something like big tabs, with pre-selected one of the entities that is most likely to be browsed...
If you could give an example of interface that solves similar problem, that would be amazing. Any suggestions in general are welcome.
