A Discoverer is an entity with an Algorand address who solicits the creation of a new ConductorTopologyNode from the GNodeFactory.

The mechanism for adding new ConductorTopologyNodes to the GNodeFactory is still a work in progress. It will likely involve providing data (for example, a utility map like the one below, with annotations) about the location of a new ConductorTopologyNode in relation to known existing ConductorTopologyNodes, as well as a period where this information can be reviewed and/or challenged.

The Discoverer will likely be issued a DiscoveryCertificate to acknowledge their contribution to mapping out the grid.
