Hi all,

I'm doing some research to get a comprehensive (as much as possible) view
on what faceted browsers are out there today for RDF data and what features
they offer.
I collected a lot of links to papers, web sites and demos... but I found
very few comparison/survey papers about this specific topic. [1] contains a
section on faceted browsers, but not so exhaustive, [2] mentions some
interesting systems but is a bit outdated.

So, my questions are:
1) Do someone know a better paper/resource I can look at for a survey?
2) Is someone currently working on a survey like this?
3) Does someone have notable additions to my list? (pasted at the end of
the mail)
At this stage I'm interested in both: automatic and configuration based
browsers, free and commercial products, hierarchical and flat facets,
"simple" and pivoting.

thank you in advance
