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=
; [http://public.kitware.com/VTK/ The Visualization Toolkit]
: C++ multi-platform with interfaces available for Tcl/Tk, Java and Python. Professional support provided by [http://www.kitware.com/ Kitware].
; [http://www.graphviz.org/ Graphviz]
: Originally developed by the [http://public.research.att.com/areas/visualization/ 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 [http://www.pixelglow.com/graphviz/ MacOS GUI version].
; [http://csbi.sourceforge.net/index.html Graph Interface Library (GINY)]
: In Java. Stunning graphics with some layout smarts.
; [http://ivtk.sourceforge.net/ InfoViz Toolkit]
: Java, originally developed at INRA
; [http://www.opendx.org/ OpenDX]
: Based on IBM's Visualization Data Explorer, runs on [[Unix]]/X11/Motif.
; [http://sourceforge.net/projects/sonia/ Social Network Image Automater]
: Originally developed at stanford; in Java
; [http://prefuse.sourceforge.net/ Perfuse]
: "A Java-based toolkit for building interactive information visualization applications."
