Faceted Navigation

Das hier ist ein schöner Sonntagsartikel, liebe THS-Leser: Design Patterns: Faceted Navigation.

Also called guided navigation and faceted search, the faceted navigation model leverages metadata fields and values to provide users with visible options for clarifying and refining queries. Faceted navigation is arguably the most significant search innovation of the past decade. It features an integrated, incremental search and browse experience that lets users begin with a classic keyword search and then scan a list of results. It also serves up a custom map that provides insights into the content and its organization and offers a variety of useful next steps. That’s where faceted navigation proves its power.

Wirklich sehr lesenswert.
