Sentinel Visualizer Reader

Free Trial

Reader Overview

Sentinel Visualizer Reader is a free, view-only software application that can open a data visualization (link analysis) chart that was created by a licensed User of the Sentinel Visualizer software. Reader Users can also drill-down to the supporting data behind the chart including metadata, notes, topics, documents, and information on the Brief tab.

Sentinel Visualizer allows link analysis charts to be exported to an SVX file and then distributed to clients and colleagues. Those recipients can install Reader for free and open the charts. Go to the Download section to get the free installation program.

Just like Adobe Reader is free and allows you to open a PDF file, Sentinel Reader is free and allows you to open an SVX file. Think of the SVX file as a "mini database" that Reader can open but in which the User cannot make any changes.


Sentinel Visualizer Reader lets you open and view the diagram that was exported by a licensed Sentinel Visualizer User. A Reader User can:

  • View the network link chart
  • Click on individual nodes and view its details (brief, metadata, topics, notes)
  • Click on individual relationships and view its details (including dates, weight, value, credibility, reliability, metadata, notes, topics, and more)
  • Visualize the Gradients including Degree, Closeness, Betweeness, and more
  • Calculate the Network Metrics including Degree, Closeness, Betweeness, and more
  • Perform Temporal Analysis using Sentinel Visualizer's Time Range tool
  • Interface to Google Earth for geospatial analysis
  • Move objects around the link charts
  • Zoom-in and navigate around the diagram using the Navigator tool
  • View the diagram in 3D ... standard and anaglyph
  • (Optional) Open a saved diagram directly from the Sentinel Visualizer database

How Do I Create an SVX File?

From the toolbar, in the Visualizer pane in the licensed version, choose Output, then Data Exchange File. Name the file, click Save (make note of the path/folder in which you are saving the file) and then email/upload the SVX file to whomever you'd like.


Sentinel Visualizer Reader differs from the fully-licensed edition:

  • Cannot add items to the link chart
  • Cannot remove items from the link chart
  • Cannot save changes or perform a declutter
  • Is not, necessarily, connected to the live database

Other features that are not included in Reader: Internet Search, Output/Reports, Shortest Path, Link Traversal, and Layout.
