For any search in Dimensions the analytical views slider can be used to instantly see visualisations of the search results. While doing a search in Dimensions, clicking on any aspect of the analytical views on the right side of the browser window will open this area by sliding across to the left of the screen to display the visual selected. The search terms and filters may still be changed with the left side filters or keywords in the main search box, and these changes will then be reflected by changes in the visualisations seen.

The analytical views section is broken down into different headings on the left side, corresponding to different aspects of the information (e.g. Source title, Researcher etc.). Selecting one of these will then group the results from your search by this attribute, and there are then visualisations associated with these to help in quickly analysing the information.
