With the proliferation of digital media – whether in the form of video or photo images – investigators are often forced to manually review and analyze millions of digital files. Although more digital files mean more potential evidence, it’s nearly impossible to manually review and make sense of such large quantities of material. Without the proper tools, the process is time-consuming and frustrating for the investigator and missed leads and unidentified connections are virtually guaranteed. The newest version of Analyze Digital Investigator (DI) 15.1 digital media investigation solution incorporates Analyze Relations, an industry first capability for visual navigation that actively suggests relationships between millions of images. Typically, investigative tools are static and investigators must know what they are looking for when new images are discovered as a part of an investigation. The process of finding out if those newly acquired images are related to one another or to previously seized data requires manual actions. Analyze Relations offers a dynamic solution that actively helps to connect the dots between images and assists in building visual maps, ultimately furthering investigators’ ability to abstract actionable intelligence from visual big data. The software identifies relationships by comparing multiple types of data collected from this type of digital media – including what camera was used, attributes depicted visually within the images, and where and when the image was taken. source:
