Data and Analytics

Our data and analytics team has created a platform of tools to enhance the way customers use data. The platform has an end­-to­-end workflow that collects, stores, processes, mines, and visualizes data. The resulting tools have proven valuable across multiple disciplines from scientific research, to engineering design, to software development. With scalable, web-­based data management; powerful, intuitive analytics engines; and functionality to create graphs, charts, geospatial maps, and other visualizations, these tools are designed to enable powerful custom solutions for any data need.

We partner with universities on government-funded projects and with commercial companies on product development. For example, we have worked with researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Harvard University, the University of Washington, and the University of Utah on web-­based data visualization tools for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s (DARPA’s) XDATA project. Our data management tools have also been used by commercial companies to enhance their software development processes as well as by doctors and medical associations to gather imaging data and to create communities around solving clinical problems.

Kitware leads development of Medical Image Quality Assurance (MIQA) software

NIH is increasing its investment in large, multi-center brain MRI studies via projects such as the BRAIN initiative. The success of these studies depends on the quality of MRIs and the resulting image measurements. Quality Assurance Many neuroscience studies rely on in-house procedures that combine automatically generated scores with manually guided checks. This is often […]

Kitware Enhances AI Infrastructure for Scientific Applications Under Department of Energy Grant

Kitware’s Data and Analytics Team is building an open source software platform called OASIS, Open source AI Software Infrastructure for Science, for researchers in the scientific domain. OASIS provides a data API to ingest and serve scientific data formats and annotations within AI workflows. It delivers a unique integration of features such as coupling of […]

Areas of Focus

Advanced Software Metrics

Advanced Software Metrics

Software is quickly becoming more nuanced and competitive with the advent of complex domains such as virtual reality and artificial intelligence. As a result, it is more important than ever to understand how code performs and how it improves over time. We help make sense of data through grand challenges that crowd-source advanced research or through metrics and dashboards that make it clear exactly where improvements are made and where gaps exist.

Bioinformatics and Large-scale Imagery

Our solutions connect cutting-edge bioinformatics research to a solid, extensible platform, where open science is front and center. We develop data management, analysis management, and visualization applications for a wide range of areas including genomics, metabolomics, and phylogenetics. From browsing and analyzing large histology slides on the web, to stabilizing and sharing new ‘omics algorithms through a robust web application, we have data and analytics covered.

Visual Data Science

We extend our heritage as leaders in scientific visualization with the Visualization Toolkit (VTK) through new visualization solutions for use in general data exploration and understanding. Our web visualizations bring together the best in modern visual analysis, lighting up data in new ways.

Geospatial Analysis

We offer advanced capabilities for geospatial analysis and visualization. We support a range of use cases from analyzing geolocated Twitter traffic, to processing and viewing complex climate models, to working with large satellite imagery datasets. Our open source tools and expert staff provide full application solutions, linking raw datasets and geospatial analyses to custom web visualizations.

What We Offer for Your Project

We provide custom research and software development, collaboration, support, training, and books to help in the above areas of focus.

Data and Analytics Platform

The Resonant platform contains open source, web-based tools that store, analyze, and visualize larege datasets from a variety of sources. These tools provide capabilities that include uploading, sharing, managing, exploring, and exporting data. The platform makes it easy to get started, and it offers the ability to create graphs and images without writing code.
