The Starlight Information Visualization System™ from Pacific Northwest National Laboratory graphically depicts information to assist human ability to derive meaningful knowledge from large and complex information resources. It is an information analysis tool and a platform for conducting visualization research.
Starlight is explicitly designed to manipulate the types of relationships humans need to understand in order to solve complex, multifaceted, real-world problems. Graphical representations enable the underlying relationships to be visually interpreted. Viewers can interactively move among multiple representations of the same information in order to uncover correlations that may span multiple relationship types.
