The overall goal of our research is to create innovative and effective integrated data and visual analytic environments-frameworks, methods, and software-that advance the start-of-the-art in analyzing massive, heterogeneous, incomplete, temporally evolving homeland security data for anticipating, detecting, and responding to DHS mission needs.Learn More...
VACCINE's goal is to educate current homeland security stakeholders and the next generation of talent and enable them to make effective decisions from the mass of multisource, multimedia data they will face in their careers. Our educational initiatives span the entire career development pipline ranging from PK-12 programs through undergraduate and graduate level work, to professional education and training programs.Learn More...
- On May 26th through the 28th we will be conducting a workshop/retreat near Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada on Visual analytics. The goal of this workshop is to: expand, update, and potentially revise/improve the draft research agenda topics from the initial workshop “Defining Visual Analytics Solutions”, draft a complete research agenda for the Science of Interaction in the visual analytics context, and, finally define follow-on project topics.

CgSARVA was developed to assist the U.S. Coast Guard in understanding the risks associated with resource reallocation and station closures (risk-based visual analytic environment) on the Great Lakes, and has now been extended to the Atlantic Command and D9. Financial considerations in the decision making were incorporated to provide financial, safety, and risk-based comparative analysis. This tool was most recently used this past fall when Superstorm Sandy struck the East Coast. In using cgSARVA, the Coast Guard was able to quickly and easily determine how resources might be reallocated with the damage caused to stations in New Jersey. Additionally, this tool is having additional inputs to account for boat capabilities and various weather conditions. The system is also being validated at the Headquarters level for Coast Guard wide use and is being used in determining the needed capabilities and priorities in rebuilding 14 damaged or destroyed stations as a result of Superstorm Sandy.
