VisuaLinks® Product Summary
VisuaLinks was developed with the concepts of information sharing and collaboration in mind. Knowing that collaboration between groups, divisions, organizations and agencies is the single best way to ensure that information is current and accurate, Visual Analytics built VisuaLinks as an analytical environment scalable and flexible enough to enable inter- and intra-organizational collaboration.
With its Server-to-Server capabilities, data and analysis storage/distribution features and real-time collaboration tools, VisuaLinks is specifically designed to not only support, but encourage, analytical teamwork.
VisuaLinks is a turn-key solution, supporting the entire analytical process, from integration and access to presentation and reporting.
VisuaLinks includes the tools you need to create a finished analysis product, whether you need to generate a formal report or a simple presentation slide.
VisuaLinks has a built-in reporting system that generates standard reports, in a number of formats, from your analysis. VisuaLinks is also fully integrated with the Eclipse Business Intelligence & Reporting Tools (BIRT) allowing you to create and generate custom reports specific to your analytical needs.
Additionally, VisuaLinks includes features that let you create a visual presentation of your analysis, such as drawing, labeling, legend and image import features. These features are designed to give users the ability to call out specific items of interest or simply create a stylish presentation of the data.
VisuaLinks is built on open standards technologies supporting extensibility through 3rd party technology integration. A sampling of current integrations include:
Display and work with your data on Google Maps and Google Earth.
Display and work with your data in ESRI's ArcGIS services.
- Active Directory
Create your VisuaLinks user accounts based on users and groups defined in the Microsoft® Active Directory Service.
- Web Services Support

- Business Intelligence & Reporting Tools (BIRT)

VisuaLinks was built from the ground up to require a minimum of system and personnel resources for daily operation. Administrative personnel are required only to manage users and data source connections. The system itself requires no daily maintenance. With automatic backup scheduling and full audit logging capabilities, VisuaLinks requires little to no human supervision in normal operating environments.
VisuaLinks is built in Java, providing for cross-platform support. VisuaLinks has been deployed on a wide range of hardware, including Windows®, HP-UX®, Linux®, Solaris™, and AIX® systems. The Server and Client components can reside and operate on different operating system platforms. The system uses open standards requiring no proprietary software to operate.
