Tree View

The Tree View presents query results in a hierarchical manner. The steps in this example still use terrorism data, but this query looks for people who organized the events leading up to and including September 11, 2001; three names and events were returned. The results are collapsible and expandable by clicking the arrow next to an element.

Clicking the magnifying glass next to a name will return that person's information. The toggle buttons in the red box depict additional methods of viewing the results. As shown below, the table button Table result button button shows the Entity Profile.

The chart Chart result button button accesses the Entity Chart, which presents entity information in a graphic manner. You can see on the top-right portion of the screen that green lines represent incoming relationships and red lines represent outgoing relationships. To view these relationships. you must hover over one of the names or events in the chart. For our example we hovered over Mohammed Atef, and he has three outgoing relationships and one incoming relationship.

On the top-left portion of the screen, you can see in the red box a Tension slider control. This enables you to designate how tight or loose the connections are between entities.

You can also rotate the image. If you hover the cursor between two of the names, you will see it turn into a four-sided arrow. Drag your the cursor in any direction to see the image rotate.
