TopQuadrant’s TopBraid provides Faceted Search over RDF/OWL data. By treating class properties as facets, TopBraid gives end users flexible, intuitive ways to search Semantic Web data. Users can configure the facets by simply adding or removing properties, and the faceted search feature is easily customizable by simple editing of HTML pages included with the TopBraid Suite. TopBraid Live’s API extends the customization possibilities even further.
Faceted Search takes advantage of metadata annotations to provide a guided search experience, allowing a user to either drill-down directly to the information of interest, or to navigate a large dataset on an “I won’t know the answer until I see it” exploration.
