Link Analysis and Data Analysis

Turn rows and columns into visual data revealing multi-level hierarchical relationships and hidden links among people, places and events.

With Microsoft SQL Server, Sentinel Visualizer supports millions of entity and relationship records. Send all your data to the diagram or use search features like the Dataset Builder and Advanced Dataset Builder to select a subset of data for your link chart. Pick entities and relationships by their specific characteristics and links to each other.

You can start big and drill down to details, or expand from individual entities one degree at a time until you include their entire network. Thousands of data points can be added to your diagram in a highly optimized, scalable, and shareable manner.

Customer Quotes

customer quotes "Sentinel Visualizer is robust enough to handle complex and meaningful link and social network analyses over complex data, yet intuitive enough to be immediately accessible. The new query and data management capabilities, as well as previously unavailable non-enterprise licensing options, make Sentinel Visualizer a competitive alternative to other link analysis products on the market."
Jonathan Adams
Principal of the Solutions Group at Eastport Analytics, Arlington, VA

"Sentinel Visualizer enables state and local government agencies, police departments, and fusion centers to better analyze data. This in turn leads to high-quality, actionable intelligence."
Bob Batty
President and CEO of Forensic Logic which manages the data for the Texas law enforcement community

"Sentinel Visualizer represents an innovative use of Microsoft SQL Server and Visual Studio .NET to deliver the next generation data analysis and visualization solutions to Federal Agencies"

Multiple Automatic Link Chart Layouts

Link Analysis Chart Layout Options

Sentinel Visualizer provides a variety of automated layout functions that make it easy to quickly organize networks into different configurations. Layouts include incremental, hierarchical, circular, elliptical, rectangular, square, triangular, orthogonal, and force-directed. Entities can also be grouped by their entity type.

Additional options control the entity sort order, multiple network displays, and other customizations.

Geospatial Visualizations

Geospatial Visualization

Entities with latitude and longitude values can be shown automatically on a map with its custom icon. Filter the network view by geographic area or use the Geo-Query to find new data by geographic location.

Sentinel Visualizer includes online maps with topography and road styles, so you can zoom to any part of the world. Also includes integration with Google Earth and support for offline maps, ESRI and shape files. There are settings, and output for printing and graphic export files.

Database Search

With Microsoft SQL Server potentially storing millions of records, Sentinel Visualizer makes it easy to find the specific entities and relationships you want with simple to advanced search options. Selected items can be viewed in detail, edited, put in reports, exported to Excel, and displayed on a link analysis diagram.

Advanced Dataset Builder

The Advanced Dataset Builder Wizard offers 15 illustrated types of links between entities and relationships combined with the advanced search features to select the desired entities and relationships. Results can be previewed or sent directly to the Visuailzer.

Temporal Analysis

Sentinel Visualizer provides timeline views of your data with dynamic time sliders.

The Timeline view shows all entity and relationship start/end date/time data in a scrollable view, making it easy to see events, overlapping periods, and other time-based patterns. Choose views by Hour, Day, Week, Month and Year to best display your data.

Temporal Analysis and Timelines

A Time Slider allows you to define a time window, move the Slider back and forth, and see how the network data changes over time.

Social Network Analysis

Employ Social Network Analysis (SNA) to instantly identify key points, centrality, and node importance by a variety of criteria.

Social Network Analysis

Secure and Private Database

Microsoft SQL Server DatabaseOnly Sentinel Visualizer gives you a powerful, configurable and scalable knowledgebase in Microsoft SQL Server that makes it easy to store any information: text, graphics, documents, video, audio, etc. Move beyond simple "cards" with a flexible multi-user data repository that is directly integrated with visualization and analysis tools. The database can be hosted locally, on a network, and in the cloud.

Multiple Monitor Support

Multiple Monitor Display SupportSentinel Visualizer maximizes your screens so you can view and analyze your large networks in detail.

Support multiple monitor displays along with and the ability to move, dock and resize any of the toolbars and panels.
