STN AnaVist 1.1 offers new options for sharing

February 20, 2006

Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) and FIZ Karlsruhe have announced a new version of the STN AnaVist analysis and visualization software that provides customers the ability to share their visualization results with others in their organization 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 visualization and its utility in revealing trends and patterns in research activity represented in database search results. Dr. Peter Jasco in his "Picks & Pans" column in ONLINE, January 2006, reported, "The most appealing feature of STN AnaVist is that it integrates the search and analysis/visualization process . . . In STN AnaVist you can search, then swiftly analyze and visualize the results in an iterative fashion, without losing momentum."
