New York City offers a wide range of high school choices. With more than 700 programs at over 400 high schools, selecting and ranking up to 12 schools for our son’s high school application has been a daunting task for our family. Fortunately, New York City offers extensive data on all schools and programs on its Open Data portal. Using the right tools and search techniques, this information can be of tremendous help, allowing students and their parents to quickly narrow down the number of choices. One effective search technique, that can help in this scenario, is referred to us faceted search, or faceted navigation. Faceted search is often encountered on commercial Web sites and data catalogues and provides an intuitive method to efficiently narrow a set of data to the precise desired subset. In this session we'll look at the high school data available on New York City's Open Data portal, discuss the various attributes that students may want to consider when making their choice and then we do a live demonstration of how to build a fully functional web-based faceted search application on New York City high school data in just minutes, using Oracle's Low Code development platform APEX, running on the Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud Service.
