In today's information revolution, people have to deal with large quantities of data in many different formats and from many different sources. PNNL has developed, and continues to research, innovative technologies to "discover the unexpected." Tools such as IN-SPIRE and Starlight are servicing private and government entities, helping analysts discover information relative to industry needs and homeland security.

PNNL is leading the Department of Homeland Security's National Visualization and Analytics Center, created to provide scientific guidance and coordination for the research and development of new tools and methods that Homeland Security has identified as required for managing, visually representing, and analyzing enormous amounts of diverse data and information.
