Something many pathogens have in common is the requirement for tracing their spread under harsh time constraints, posing a so-called contact tracing (or ``race-to-trace'') problem. We present a tool for visualizing contact networks, an important step towards practical use by epidemiologists, which generates interactive three-dimensional (3D) network visualizations. Its general purpose visualization engine can support multiple applications and varying pathogens. The main purpose is to trace, in the case of an outbreak, contacts among individuals known to have been at the same place.
