Improving Visual Investigation Analysis of Digital Communication Data within E-discovery

Sathiyanarayanan, M. ORCID: 0000-0002-8598-1949 (2017). Improving Visual Investigation Analysis of Digital Communication Data within E-discovery. Paper presented at the VIS 2017, 1-6 Oct 2017, Phoenix, USA.


The main aim of the research is to develop visual designs and frameworks for digital communication data within an investigation domain (i.e E-discovery) to address immediate challenges, support investigative tasks and find information in data to support legal evidence. This will enable analysts to compare time-frames, individuals and groups of data objects from multiple perspectives, identify relevant subsets of data and find anomalous communication behavior. In this research, we will be developing techniques and implementing comparison strategies in software prototypes through a structured process of abstraction, design and testing. Doing so is intended to explore and answer a series of research questions in ways that will improve the role of visualisation in E-discovery.
