452Re: [ona-prac] Link Analysis versus Social Network Analysis
- Nov 11, 2007I encounter "link analysis" when working with law enforcement and
Links analysis, from my outsider perspective, is linking together
various objects for evidence mapping. These objects include people,
cars, houses, businesses, phone numbers, other objects of ownership.
It is felt that such analysis can uncover cells and gangs and other
criminal conspiracies -- besides providing nice visuals for court.
They do not use social network metrics but do a elementary form
degree and cluster analysis, and have a good understanding of
structural equivalence. The main tool in play for link analysis is
i2's Analyst Workbook -- which has a strangle hold on that market.
