* Sandia is a multiprogram laboratory operated by Sandia Corporation, a Lockheed Martin Company, for the United States Department of Energy under Contract DE-AC04-94AL85000. We present the application of our knowledge visualization tool, VxInsight ® , to enable domain analysis for science and technology management within the enterprise. Data mining from sources of bibliographic information is used to define subsets of information relevant to a technology domain. Relationships between the individual objects (e.g. articles) are identified using citations, descriptive terms, or textual similarities. Objects are then clustered using a force-directed placement algorithm to produce a terrain view of the many thousands of objects. A variety of features which allow exploration and manipulation of the landscapes and which give detail-on-demand, enable quick and powerful analysis of the resulting landscapes. Examples of domain analyses used in S&T management at Sandia are given.
