Faceted navigation

Faceted navigation is a methodology for organizing information to optimize navigation by values in the data.

An implementation consists of:

  • descriptor (see 'Index Term ') – the fundamental object of information the user is trying to retrieve;
  • qualifier (modifier) – a value that helps the user to refine where to look for information about the descriptor;
  • locator – provides an absolute address for information.
