In this paper we presented LogAnalysis, a Social Network Analysis tool designed to manage with communication networks (e.g., phone call networks, mobile phone networks).

In detail, it provides visual data representation of networks, statistical analysis and temporal evolution analysis of communication activities.

In the paper it is also discussed the usage of LogAnalysis during real forensic investigations as a tool to understand communication dynamics in criminal networks, discovering communities of suspected individuals, unveiling hierarchies and structure of criminal rings and much more.
