I'm looking for design inspiration and best practices for filtering a large data set by pre-selected criteria (eg. data range, a location, from an item selected from a list, etc.).
This is for an enterprise app that gives users the ability to create reports and extract specific results from a large database.
I've seen a bunch of faceted search examples, but in this case, the criteria for the results are determined before the results are displayed. Something like an advanced search UI, but good god do I want to avoid creating something like that if possible.
