Background: The Starlight Information Visualization System launches a new generation in visualization technology by uncovering key relationships hidden in large, complex, dynamic information collections. Unlike other technologies, Starlight integrates structured, unstructured, spatial, and multimedia data, offering comparisons of information at multiple levels of abstraction -- simultaneously and in near real-time. Starlight divides the information exploitation problem into four distinct stages: 1) Information Collection -- retrieving and ingesting a wide variety of information types and formats, 2) Information Engineering -- If information exploitation can be thought of as a process of connecting the dots, XML Engineering Environment (XEE) is a powerful system for creating high-quality "dots," focused information packages for effective problem solving, 3) Information Modeling -- "connects the dots" by creating information models that explicitly capture relationships of interest to the analysts 4) Knowledge Discovery -- provides the tools that generate graphical representations (visual metaphors) of various aspects of the information. Together, these components enable a powerful new approach to addressing the problems associated with information overload: not just managing huge volumes of disparate information, but also recasting the information into forms more conducive to problem solving, thus enabling the rapid and effective visual interpretation of the complex relationships existing among the contents of such collections.
