Re: [ia-55] Alternative to Tree UI

What is the primary usage? Is someone, during a single session, likely to have to access multiple items in the hierachy? ie, is the main task to support initial discovery of known items, or rapid switching between topic/function areas?

Are they living in this app or just visiting?

Hi Saurabh,

I've always liked the column-based drilldown approach, as in the MacOS Finder column view. 

Alternately, have you considered whether there is a different way to organize the information? People outside the computer field often have a hard time understanding deeply nested hierarchies, regardless of how they are presented. Is there any way to flatten the taxonomy?

Hi !
I am trying to design a UI which has lot of data in hierarchical format. Although I can use tree UI but there are multiple level of hierarchy (more than 5) and the names/labels are longer which makes the UI look busy and difficult to navigate. I was wondering if any of you guys have worked on some alternative to tree UI.
Thanks a lot for helping out!

Regards,
Saurabh
