Here is a BY DATE listing of '''upcoming conferences and training events''' that pertain to [[digital forensics]]. Some of these duplicate the generic [[conferences]], but have specific dates/locations for the upcoming conference/training event.
+
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.

Revision as of 01:28, 23 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 and Libraries

Graph Drawing Applications

  • 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.
  • Guess: The Graph Exploration System - Originally developed at HP, this is a large Jython/Java-based system that you can use for building your own applications. Distributed under GPL.
HyperGraph
Hyperbolic trees, in Java. Check out the home page. Try clicking on the logo...
InfoVis Cyberinfrastructure
Another graph drawing system written in Java.
Jdigrah
Java Directed Graphs.
Large Graph Layout (LGL)
A bioinformatics system from University of Texas. They really mean Large.
OpenDX
Based on IBM's Visualization Data Explorer, runs on Unix/X11/Motif.
Java Universal Network/Graph Framework (JUNG)
