Abstract
Defence R&D Canada has initiated a research project, nicknamed SNAC, to explore an intelligence capability for Social Networks Analysis (SNA) in a Counter-Insurgency (COIN) context. This paper presents strategies for the development of visual analytics tools for such purposes. First, we discuss the particularities of the COIN context and the various levels and dimensions of analysis required. Then, we present the SNA capability framework as a mechanism to match visualization tools to SNA related tasks. Finally, we consider potential visual analytics solutions for social network graph analysis as well as the use of geographical and multidimensional representations of the variables of interest.
