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.
