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.
Events should be posted in the correct section, and in date order.  An event should NEVER be listed in more than one section (i.e. Ongoing/Continuous events should not be listed in Scheduled Training).  When events begin the same day, events of a longer length should be listed first.  New postings of events with the same date(s) as other events should be added after events already in the list. If a provider offers the same event at several locations simultaneously, the listing should have a single (ONE) entry in the list with the date(s) and ALL locations for the event. Please use three-letter month abbreviations (i.e. Sep, NOT Sept. or September), use two digit dates (i.e. Jan 01 NOT Jan 1), and use date ranges rather than listing every date during an event(i.e. Jan 02-05, NOT Jan 02, 03, 04, 05).<br>
+
<i>Some events may be <u>limited</u> to <b>Law Enforcement Only</b> or to a specific audience.  Such restrictions should be noted when known.</i>
+
  
This is a BY DATE listing of upcoming events relevant to [[digital forensics]].  It is not an all inclusive list, but includes most well-known activities.  Some events may duplicate events on the generic [[conferences]] page, but entries in this list have specific dates and locations for the upcoming event.

Revision as of 21:40, 20 April 2006

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
