Abstract
In the context of modern defence and security operations, analysts are faced with a continuously growing set of information of different nature which causes significant information overload problems and prevent developing good situation awareness. Fortunately, Visual Analytics (VA) has emerged as an efficient way of handling and making sense of massive data sets by exploiting interactive visualization technologies and human cognitive abilities. Defence R&D Canada has conducted a review of the applicability of VA to support military and security operations. This paper is meant to provide someone new to this area with a quick overview of the current state of the art in visual analytics. First, we introduce the important scientific visualization, interaction and reasoning concepts supporting VA. Then, we present some visual analytics advanced techniques. The VA requirements are described for the cyber security and intelligence for counterterrorism application domains, along with promising research projects and commercial software. Finally, we identify relevant VA resources.
