Workshop Description:
Search often reveals too much information. Filtering is a way to rapidly narrow a large information space. It is also a way to reveal important patterns, focus on specific details, and reduce visual noise. This workshop will teach you how design a filtering interface, including choosing filter controls, mapping metadata to these controls, patterns for representing filtered information, and a framework for approaching filtering problems on desktop, mobile, and other technologies.

A framework for approaching information problems in terms of filtering. A structured process for mapping information to filter controls. A conceptual model for all major elements of a filtering interface: controls, substrate, and objects. A vocabulary of interactions people use to understand information. How interaction can be used to tackle understanding problems with existing technology, as well as how it might be applied to emerging technology such as augmented reality.
