A search for “user interface” powered by Endeca (http://www.lib.ncsu.edu) returns
144 results grouped into 10 pages. The menu at the upper right allows users to sort
results by relevance or by date, while on the left a summary of the results organized
by Subject, Genre, or Format provides an overview of the results and facilitates
further refinement of the search.

Using The Hive Group’s treemap (http://www.hivegroup.com/), users can review all waterproof binoculars in the catalog of Amazon.com products and browse the items in the list, grouped by manufacturer. Each box corresponds to a pair of binoculars, and the size of the box is proportional to its price. Green boxes are best-sellers. Users can filter the results using the dynamic query sliders on the right. Here all the binoculars with less than three user reviews have been filtered out, leaving only 61 binoculars to consider.
