Within the Alert system Analyst’s Notebook is integrated with Crime Workbench via CWB i2 Plug-in, enabling the visualization of analytical entities and links stored in CWB databases and providing the users with the functionality of Crime Workbench from the Analyst’s Notebook level.

Analyst’s Notebook provides the optimum environment for effective link and timeline analysis. It is the de facto standard for this type of analysis worldwide and is an essential visualization application. It is always instrumental in:

  • identifying the factors contributing to an issue, evaluating their probable causes and effects and understanding the relationships between them;

  • increasing the ability of the analytical team to rapidly achieve a broad-based understanding of complex situations;

  • providing an ideal medium for disseminating critical information concisely;

  • quick identification of the common elements and connections within your data;

  • providing a comprehensive range of analytical techniques to develop the investigation;

  • graphical presentation of the results, making them more accessible and easier to understand;

  • production of dynamic briefing charts by including photographs, video clips and documents;

  • providing rapid changes to the representation of your chart from link analysis to time analysis, and visa versa;

  • dissemination of the information by printing the charts or sending them electronically to other interested parties.

Analyst’s Notebook is used to graphically present entities and associations between them in the form of analytical charts. Entities are selected pieces of analyzed information, such as persons, companies, addresses, vehicles etc. They can be presented on a chart with icons or other symbols such as: theme lines, event frames, boxes, circles, text blocks, OLE objects. Associations are shown as links between entities. Each entity and each link features a defined type.

Analyst’s Notebook chart is not only a picture. There is also a lot of information hidden behind it. For example, you can gather knowledge on entities or links in the form of information cards.

With Analyst’s Notebook, you can create charts, both manually and automatically, using the importing facility. The information may come from a variety of sources, such as personal knowledge, written reports, photographs, video clips, spreadsheets, e-mail, word processing files and databases. Analyst’s Notebook allows you to display and analyze the information in a visual form.

Analyst’s Notebook integrates with all other i2 products, such as iBase or Pattern Tracer. It can also be configured to connect direct to your own database systems or to integrate with other applications.

Analyst’s Notebook supports link analysis, network analysis, timeline analysis and transaction pattern analysis.

Link analysis visually links different entities, such as people and organizations, to show the relationships between them. This can be used to show flows of commodities, or help to form better understanding of who the key players are, their communications, operating methods, and any associated partners.

Network analysis applies link analysis to large data sets such as telephone calls, bank account transactions, and Internet traffic records, to reveal paths, clusters or connected groups.

Timeline analysis depicts events as they unfold over time, allowing to understand cause and effect, identify patterns, and decide upon appropriate courses of action. Entities can be tracked over time, to identify their associations with an event or incident.

Transaction pattern analysis allows to display a series of transactions in chronological order. This helps to reveal repeating patterns of activity and can help to predict future behavior.

Transaction Pattern Analysis Chart Showing Financial Transactions.

The four analytical methods just listed are used to produce comprehensive charts depicting the entire investigation, or charts showing particular elements that can be used for briefings. Charts can also contain a mixture of these types of information.

The data in the chart can be viewed from different perspectives. For example, you may create a chart that shows associations between entities, such as telephones and telephone calls. You can easily change the focus of your chart by changing the representation of items on the chart.

Viewing Same Telephone Calls from Various Perspectives.

Besides visualization, presentation and the database functions accessible from the Analyst’s Notebook level, the application provides a number of powerful analytical functions such as Visual Search, Find Text, Find Path, Find Clusters, Find Matching Entities, Importing or Reporting.
