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.
=Open Source Visualization Toolkits=
; [ The Visualization Toolkit]
: C++ multi-platform with interfaces available for Tcl/Tk, Java and Python. Professional support provided by [ Kitware].
; [ Graphviz]
: Originally developed by the [ AT&T Information Visualization Gorup], designed for drawing connected graphs of nodes and edges. Neato is a similar system but does layout based on a spring model. Can produce output as [[PostScript]], [[PNG]], [[GIF]], or as an annotated graph file with the locations of all of the objects---ideal for drawing in a GUI. Runs from the command line on [[Unix]], [[Windows]] and [[Mac]], although there is also a [ MacOS GUI version].
; [ InfoViz Toolkit]
: Java, originally developed at INRA
; [ OpenDX]
: Based on IBM's Visualization Data Explorer, runs on [[Unix]]/X11/Motif.
; [ Perfuse]
: "A Java-based toolkit for building interactive information visualization applications."
; [ VisAD]
: A Java component library for interactive and collaborative visualization.
==Graph Drawing Tools==
; [ uDrawGraph]
=Commercial Tools=
; [ aiSee Graph Layout Software]
: Supports 15 layout algorithms, recursive graph nesting, and easy printing. Runs on [[Windows]], [[Linux]], [[Solaris]], [[NetBSD]], and [[MacOS]]. 30-day trial and free registered versions available. Academic pricing available.
; [ Tom Sawyer Software] Analysis, Visualizaiton, and Layout programs.
: Heavy support for drawing graphs. Beautiful gallery. ActiveX, Java, C++ and .NET editions.
; [ Geomantics]
: Geographical, Visualization and Graphics software. Runs on [[Windows]].
; [ Graphis 2D and 3D graphing software]
: Runs on [[Windows]]. Free 30-day evaluation copy available.
;[ OpenViz] and  [ PowerViz]
: Both from Advanced Visual Systems, super high-end visualization toolkits. $$$$
=Other Resources=

; [ Scientific Visualization at the Supercomputing Institute]
; [ Google Directory of Graph Drawing Software]
; [ ACM Symposium on Software Visualization]
: May give you some ideas.
; [ GNU Free Software directory of scientific visualization software]
; [ Roberto Tamassia's resources on Graph Drawing]
