KronoGraph update: new timeline scale wrapping

We’re proud to announce that version 1.1 of KronoGraph, our interactive timeline visualization tool, is available to download. It comes with a very special feature for exploring patterns of behavior by wrapping data in different timeline scales, along with fully-documented examples to get you started quickly.

Timeline scale wrapping reveals behavioral insights

For investigators to recognize anomalies in their time-based data, they first need to understand what a typical pattern of activity looks like. Pattern of life analysis is a powerful technique used by intelligence agencies worldwide.

KronoGraph’s timeline scale wrapping feature is a fully-interactive way to uncover familiar event sequences that might otherwise go unnoticed.

Set your timeline to scale wrap however you want

Investigators summarize their data over a specific period – a day, a week, a month, etc. – to understand what ‘typical’ activity looks like. KronoGraph wraps the chosen duration in the selected timeline scale, making clear how activities are distributed and revealing hidden patterns at a glance.

Match intuitive investigative workflows

Once the data at a certain timeline scale has been explored, users instinctively want to look at the data on other scales to build up a more detailed pattern of activities. There’s no need to scroll to the time period you want: KronoGraph automatically filters and fits the timeline data to the screen.

New showcase demo: Pattern of Life Analysis

The best way to get up to speed with scale wrapping is to try it for yourself. We’ve created a brand new demo to showcase how to discover patterns in a dataset of company emails. Use timeline scale wrapping to find out when the CEO usually starts emailing, and which employees send messages at unusual hours.
