Hello Folks

I'm writing a thriller and I need a bit of information.

My question concerns content analysis:

According to accepted usage, the term "content analysis" refers to the content of communications.

I may be using the term incorrectly because I have been using it to refer not to communications but the movement of physical goods. For example if my surveillance of an enemy's territory shows the construction of a cement plant and a railroad spur, this may indicate the building of a new factory or other structure.

My question is: does the term "content analysis" include the movement of physical goods or is there another accepted term?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Warmest regards

Content analysis can be used as long as you define its meaning with use of the term.
 
IE: Content analysis of 3 random containers at the aforementioned location has revealed the presence of H2O within the vessels.

Good luck!!!

Thanks for your help.

I appreciate it very much. Technical errors in the fiction I read drive me mad [mad]. I try very hard to avoid them in my own writing.

All the best.

Warmest regards
Riis
