Six Methods of Transaction Visualization in Virtual Environments

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Many governmental and corporate organizations are interested in tracking materials and/or information through a network. Often, as in the case of the U.S. Customs Service, the traffic is recorded as transactions through a large number of checkpoints with a correspondingly complex network. These networks will contain large numbers of uninteresting transactions that act as noise to conceal the chains of transactions of interest, such as drug trafficking. We are interested in finding significant paths in transaction data containing high noise levels, which tend to make traditional graph visualization methods complex and hard to understand. This paper covers the evolution of ... continued below

Description

Many governmental and corporate organizations are interested in tracking materials and/or information through a network. Often, as in the case of the U.S. Customs Service, the traffic is recorded as transactions through a large number of checkpoints with a correspondingly complex network. These networks will contain large numbers of uninteresting transactions that act as noise to conceal the chains of transactions of interest, such as drug trafficking. We are interested in finding significant paths in transaction data containing high noise levels, which tend to make traditional graph visualization methods complex and hard to understand. This paper covers the evolution of a series of graphing methods designed to assist in this search for paths-from 1-D to 2-D to 3-D and beyond.
