Your Home for Faceted Classification Tools
Facetmap is both a data model and a software package, created to let users browse complex metadata while retaining a simple, familiar, menu interface.

Build Your Own Facetmap: Point of Entry

You can now run your own live Facetmap on our demo server in one of two ways. You can upload it, or, if it's publicly available online, you can link to it.

If you don't have a Facetmap file written yet, it's easy to write. Use our annotated wine facetmap file (text | XML | more info) as a starting point. Facetmap docs written in XFML are welcome too.

If you've got your facetmap ready to go, use one of these forms:

Upload is recommended for users new to Facetmap. The upload form accepts plaintext and XML documents, and only requires a standard web browser.

Go to the upload form

Link is recommended for users who can post files to a webserver. Instead of uploading, you enter the facetmap's URL. The link form only accepts XML-formatted documents.
