Parallel Faceted Browsing
Parallel Faceted Browsing “makes it easy for a user to construct and view the results of multiple interrelated queries” .
At the beginning, we created a conceptual model of the initial idea of Parallel Faceted Browsing. Then, we used the tool CogTool to build a prototype based on the needs of two personas. During a study, it was demonstrated to six participants, who had to fill out a paper questionnaire and take part in a short interview afterwards.
Our input helped drawing up a paper explaining the general concept of Parallel Faceted Browsing . A further improved version with the name Parallel Exploration is now being commercialised. For example, people interested in visiting Milan can explore the different points of interest on a website that uses this concept.
