STN AnaVist Version 1.1

Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) and FIZ Karlsruhe have announced a new version of the STN AnaVist analysis and visualisation software that provides customers with ways to share their visualisation results with others in their organisation.

The software achieves this through new login IDs for shared projects that enable interactive viewing, and through new pre-defined project reports. The new collaboration feature was added in STN AnaVist, 1.1, in response to customer requests only a few months after the successful introduction of the software.

Since its introduction in 2005, STN AnaVist has been praised by users and reviewers for its integration of several modes of visualisation and its utility in revealing trends and patterns in research activity represented in database search results.
