August 7, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Computer Weekly News -- Investigators discuss new findings in Computer Programming. According to news originating from Perugia, Italy, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "We present a new software system, VisFAN, for the visual analysis of financial activity networks. We combine enhanced graph drawing techniques to devise novel algorithms and interaction functionalities for the visual exploration of networked data sets, together with tools for SNA and for the automatic generation of reports."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the University of Perugia, "An application example constructed on real data is presented. We also report the results of a study aimed at qualitatively understanding the satisfaction level of the analysts when using VisFAN. VisFAN makes a strong use of visual interactive tools, combined with ad-hoc clustering techniques and customizable layout constraints management."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "As this system confirms, information visualization can play a crucial role to face the discovery of financial crimes."
