Abstract
This is a short report discussing how Visual Analytics at large can improve capabilities at Canadian Departments and Agencies, such as Candian Security Intelligence Services (CSIS), Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), Public Safety Canada (PSC) and the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA). The report begins with a brief summary of Visual Analytics. Several indicative visual analytic tools are then presented. These “case study” tools illustrate visual analytic technologies that are at a high Technology Readiness Level (TRL). There follows a description of potential visual analytics opportunities for several representative federal organizations. The report concludes with several recommendations on how the federal government may facilitate the adaptation and exploitation of Visual Analytic tools.
