Visual Analytics Part 2: Get a Perspective
Last week we looked at the relationship and time analytics in Nuix Web Review & Analytics. Now we’ll take a look at the statistic and map analytics.
In my last post, I mentioned that you can create and customize dashboard “perspectives” in the way that you want to see your data. Another very cool feature is that the Nuix Web Review & Analytics dashboard is completely interactive, so it updates dynamically based on your active query. So it not only gives you an overview of your entire corpus of data, you can also slice and dice that data based on any Nuix search query you can construct.
This new analytic helps you define a set of configurable queries that run against the scoped query, and then enables you to group container, custodian, tag, or custom metadata by evidence.
View counts for each of the available named entities. Out of the box, Nuix extracts named entities for company names, person names, IP addresses, URLs, email addresses, monetary values, country names, credit card numbers, and personal identification numbers. But you can also construct your own named entities using regular expressions and run them during processing.
This analytic lets you compare the numerical counts of any two sets of item attributes. Sets of item attributes include things like custodian name, evidence container, domain, kind, sender or recipient, language, item sets, production sets, and word lists.
With the Shingle analytic, you can see the counts of each shingle run associated with a given set of items. (Check out my post on shingling for a refresher on this process for identifying overlapping near-duplicates.)
Get insight into the relative size of various sets of attributes based on data volume or item count. Sets of item attributes include custodian name, evidence container, domain, kind, sender or recipient, language, item sets, production sets, and word lists.
This analytic is also new for Nuix Web Review & Analytics 6.2. In it, you can define a set of configurable queries to run against the scoped query and then choose whether to represent it as data volmes or item counts.
This analytic enables you to see a list of words and the number of occurrences across the in-scope items.
This visualization lets you plot items with geographical data on a map. You can then use the map to scope your result set.
With Nuix Web Review & Analytics 6.2, there are 13 different analytics that you can include in your dashboard perspectives. While I’ve reviewed each of these at a high level in these past two blog posts, over the next several weeks I will take you through each of these and show you how the best way to achieve insight into your data is to get a perspective.
