Improve Browsing of Data.gov

While there are quite a few discussions on this site about search; I would like to see improved browsing via a robust taxonomy/folksonomy of topic areas. In fact, I would recommend both a top-down/bottom-up approach where you begin with a top-down taxonomy but allow it to be extended via topic area suggestions and popular keywords.

As a citizen, I don't always know what I want but want to browse and see what is available.

    Both of these examples are good starts on what I was proposing. I like the drill down of the OntologyBrowser example and I like the nice Graphs in the Tableau public.

    These are great starts! I hope OMB considers both of these in launching semantic.data.gov
