Understanding data gathered so far in a criminal or terrorist threat investigation is of great importance, particularly in guiding the future course of the investigation. One established method of better understanding the data is to visualize it as a network, showing how objects of interest are connected. In this article, we briefly describe this form of visual data analysis, the products available to support it and why current database support is lacking; plus, we present an experimental database interface for exploring data in this manner.
