This looks like a great legal research engine but only if your looking for american material.The visualisation showing connections between cases or showing materials by year looks like a useful tool.How do we get this website for Australian materials?
@AlexLooks like there are three options. Crowd-funding, private or public development. Austlii dominates the public funding in the space and probably won't yield or upgrade for a while. Casebase or Firstpoint could be upgraded with a similar schema approach, but I don't think the publishers are really prepared to spend the money. You could try and see a crowd-funding approach, the cost of developing a schema would not be high, but the content may be difficult to get - let alone the fact that you would need someone to do the checking on the legal side. Australia is probably too small a market for this type of innovation.
It's pretty cool how you can see the links between the courts in the hierarchy.
