Cambridge Intelligence, creators of connected data visualization tools that make the world safer, today announced the release of KeyLines 5.0.

The latest version of the award-winning KeyLines toolkit includes a complete overhaul of its geospatial features. KeyLines 5.0 delivers a smoother, faster mapping experience that makes it easier than ever to visualize connections in geospatial data.

Location information holds a potentially rich source of data insight. From discovering fraud hotspots to understanding the location of cyber threats or IT network activity, KeyLines Geospatial helps you to better understand map-based connections.

The geospatial engine in KeyLines 5.0 supports a vast range of third-party map tile providers and plugins, giving you complete control over visualizing and interacting with geospatial data. Whether you’re using plugins for geofencing and map layers, or integrating with leading geospatial service providers like Esri, KeyLines delivers the right visualization solution.

Another major feature of KeyLines 5.0 is support for scalable background images in charts. Visualizing nodes and links on everything from floor plans to building footprints, transport hubs to IT network diagrams, gives insightful context to graph data. With the ability to smoothly transition between real maps and offline or image maps, this opens up a whole new world of connected data analysis.

KeyLines 5.0 supports images as maps: a radical new way to visualize location data.
