The authors used Tableau to create a visualization tool that allows U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) to display the performance and effectiveness of its support to intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) roles, sub-roles, and activities. The various visualizations provide both a high-level overview of CENTCOM ISR and a more nuanced understanding of the differences between regions, operations, platforms, sensors, and other variables considered.
To make this tool accessible to as wide an audience as possible, the visualization tool uses data that are inspired by the CENTCOM Office of ISR Assessments database for the data visualization. Although this tool is intended to assist CENTCOM Directorate of Intelligence (J2) in improving the quality, effectiveness, and efficiency of its ISR assessments, the visualization could be adapted to a number of different uses.
