Visual Analytics has been making powerful charts since maybe 1999 or 2003
It seems SAS, then Raytheon took over VisualAnalytics.
Personally, as a database and charts fan/fiend, I am not surprised by the capabilities of the NSA or GCHQ, or others. I just hope they are not *excessively* abusing their power. But, the software, and suites like it, make for some kewl/neat modules and tools.
Check out the Law Enforcement and the Banking/anti-money-laundering solutions/features.
Really impressive stuff -- as long as it's not being used to frag non-criminals. OTOH, it can help drive down high vehicle insurance rates, spot manufacturing defects, and do lots of other useful things.
