" This basically means, like all models, that it is a representation of what actually exists in reality. A statistical or mathematical model attempts to represent some behavior in terms of a statistical or mathematical formula.

Getting started with Palladio – Miriam Posner's Blog

Updated November 2015 for Palladio 1.1. If you’d like to use this tutorial in the classroom, or if you want to alter it and make it your own, there’s a version on Github you can do whatever you want with. Palladio, a product of Stanford’s Humanities + Design Lab, is a web-based visualization tool for complex humanities data. Think of Palladio as a sort of Swiss Army knife for humanities data. It’s one package that includes a number of tools, each of which allows you to get a different angle on the same data. Palladio is relatively new and still under active development which means that you will almost certainly encounter bugs!

In the previous tutorial, I showed you how to implement very nice “Smart search” feature using Selectize.js plugin to make user experience a bit nicer: When I develop web applications, I care a lot about the user experience and how easy it is for the user to get to the desired page. In this post I will explain the concepts behind making in-place pagination for your PHP apps that allows the user to view many pages of content without doing a page refresh, aka “In-place pagination”.

The real, working demo of this type of search is also available at: CSS Content Filter. A slide-in filter panel powered by CSS and jQuery. Browser support ie Chrome Firefox Safari Opera 9+ A well-designed filter is a powerful tool users can take advantage of. It is actually an essential feature if your website has lots of content, distributed across different categories. For an e-commerce, it is a way to increase conversion rates by reducing the time needed by the user to find what he’s looking for. Building this kind of features is never easy: filters highly depend on the website content; besides a filter panel shouldn’t be distracting, the main focus should be the content/products.

Search Filtering vs. Faceting – A Useful Distinction – Search Tools Consulting. I’ve found that distinguishing between the overall concept of filtering and the specific technique of faceting is useful for evaluating and improving search. Search Filtering is reducing a search result by removing result items that don’t match a certain criteria. For example, a user could filter a search by removing Excel files from results, or limiting shoes to size 7. In the simplest case, this is done by issuing another search specifying or disallowing the new requirement.

This new search may or may not have any matches in the index, so it may lead to a dead end of a no results page. Search Faceting is a specific type of filter: the system displaying relevant metadata sets about results items, such as file type or shoe size, and allowing users to choose among them. As first defined by Marti Hearst in the Flamenco project, the classic faceted user interface includes the number of items that fit both the current search criteria and the value for the facet choice.
