Although not strictly for forensic purposes, '''visualization tools''' such as the ones discussed here can be very useful for visualizing large data sets. As forensic practitioners need to process more and more data, it is likely that some of the techniques implemented by these tools will need to be adopted.

Cell Site Analysis (CSA) is the technical discipline of using mobile telephony signals and network data to triangulate and identify the relative geographic position of a device.

Cell site analysis is considered a highly intrusive surveillance technique and as such normally deployed only in sensitive or serious criminal investigations.

The technique can assist in demonstrating the co-location (meeting) of individuals, their movements over time, proximity to a scene of crime, and to verify the any defence alibi evidence.
