Abstract: IST-110 is the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Research Task Group on visualization for analysis. The Group works to promote the research and deployment of visual analytics techniques among the NATO member nations and partner nations. The Group promotes collaboration and research in a broad range of NATO application areas. This poster describes an exploration of the Royal Netherlands Air Force (RNLAF) Wildlife Strike Database: it outlines the initial stages of a Visual Analytics approach to understanding, exploring, visualizing and analysing the raw data. The aim of the research is to address the management of wildlife strikes in and around airports by considering the ’5 W questions’, i.e., ’where’ and ’when’ do ’which species’, in ’what number’, collide with aircraft, and ’why are wildlife at the airport’?
