TradeAnalysis Visualization Comparisons


Kenneth D. Niles, Joseph E. Jabour, Joshua Q. Church, and Timothy W. Garton


The objective of this report is to identify available tools that satisfy the customer's needs instead of recreating a tool that already exists. With the vast amount of data analysis and visualization tools on the market, it can be difficult to choose the correct tool for any given purpose. It should be noted that the goal of this report is not to determine the best data analysis and visualization tool, but rather to inform readers about specific factors each tool offers. The TradeAnalysis team (in support of the Engineered Resilient Systems Decision Support Tradespace Analytics team) achieved this goal by first creating a list of factors to objectively compare each tool. Once the factors were determined, each team member was tasked to find viable tools on the market capable of generalizing solutions to customer's requirements. Once the research was completed, the team gathered the data and compiled this report to compare the advantages and disadvantages of the tools.
