It is the de facto standard for this type of analysis worldwide and is an
essential visualization application. It is always instrumental in:

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
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.
Example of Analyst’s Notebook Char Including Information Card.
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

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.
