VIENNA, VA – November 2007 — FMS, Inc., Tysons Corner, Va. an In-Q-Tel portfolio company, has launched Sentinel Visualizer, a product that utilizes advanced data visualization tools.
Sentinel Visualizer introduces the capabilities of advanced social network analysis, providing users the ability to see and analyze complex relationships that exist within data. It also empowers users to gain maximum value from data by using an advanced set of tools. For example, data involving people can be analyzed and manipulated to determine key relationships, such as who talks to whom and who is related to whom. Entities and events can be depicted visually so the user can see their timing and create connections between seemingly unrelated information and relationships. There are also geospatial tools to map, analyze, and compare locations, and temporal capabilities to view how situations have changed over time.
The program recognizes that all data is not equal in importance, credibility, and reliability. It allows users to tag and filter data, apply weightings to relationships, and automatically redraw link charts, thus more accurately reflecting reality and allowing analysts and researchers to maximize the value of their data resulting in quicker and better decisions.
