Hello everyone! I am researching filtering and querying interfaces and I was
wondering if anyone had run across any that made an impression on them. They
can be interesting, beautiful, unusual or even awful patterns I just want to
see what we can dig up.

I am following the guidelines that Jennifer Tidwell described in her book
Designing Interfaces, so I am looking for examples of filtering and faceted
search tools that are one, or all of the following: Highly Interactive,
Iterative and Contextual.

Bonus points if you can locate unusual frameworks for doing this!

Thanks!

Paige, my favourite is

I find the mix of dynamic faceted navigation and content quite
immersing. The subtle use of colours and size to represent metadata
is very well thought out imho.

Here's another example:

This is faceted browsing rather than search, but the contextual
integration is pretty cool.

I like the 'Flexstore' which comes as example of Flex application.
{link}: http://flexapps.macromedia.com/flex15/flexstore/flexstore.mxml?versionChecked=true

Especially the two handles on the prize range selection and the
instant feedback the user gets by disabling the products that fall
outside the range the user selected.

For me, its a very good example of visually using the filter.

Bill Scott posted his own thoughts on filtering in this post:

There's a few good examples from Bill, plus a few of his anti-patterns
and click through to read the basis for his post.
