Revision as of 13:38, 31 May 2009

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.

Programming Languages and Developer Toolkits

If you are building forensic tools, you probably want to start with one of these:

Java and Swing
Advantage: Portable and lots of good documentation out there.
Disadvantage: Programs are a bit verbose, and only offers about 1/2 the performance of C
Python with tkinter
Advantage: Portable
Disadvantage: Python is one of the slowest modern languages around.
Python with wxWidgets
Advantage: Portable and a better development environment than tkiner
Disadvantage: wxWidgets is not installed by default, so you'll need to get it installed. Not as well documented as Tkinter
processing.org
Advantage: Programming language specifically developed for visualization; compiles to java byte code
Disadvantage: Very oddball

Visualization Toolkits and Libraries

Tree Maps

Treemaps are a visualization technique developed at the University of Maryland for visualizing large amounts of multi-dimensional data. There is a GPLed implementation of treemaps written in C. You can find a copy of in it:
