View full screen. An intuitive approach to network layout is to model the graph as a physical system: nodes are charged particles that repel each other, and links are dampened springs that pull related nodes together. A physical simulation of these forces then determines node positions; approximation techniques that avoid computing all pairwise forces enable the layout of large numbers of nodes.
Flare is an ActionScript library for creating visualizations that run in the Adobe Flash Player. From basic charts and graphs to complex interactive graphics, the toolkit supports data management, visual encoding, animation, and interaction techniques. Even better, flare features a modular design that lets developers create customized visualization techniques without having to reinvent the wheel. View the demos and sample applications to see a few of the visualizations that flare makes it easy to build. To begin making your own visualizations, download flare and work through the tutorial. You should also get familiar with the API documentation.
Wrapping your brain around data online can be challenging, especially when dealing with huge volumes of information. And trying to find related content can also be difficult, depending on what data you’re looking for. But data visualizations can make all of that much easier, allowing you to see the concepts that you’re learning about in a more interesting, and often more useful manner. Below are 50 of the best data visualizations and tools for creating your own visualizations out there, covering everything from Digg activity to network connectivity to what’s currently happening on Twitter. Music, Movies and Other Media Narratives 2.0 visualizes music.
Graph Visualization on Google App Engine « HFV If I want to generate nice sql depency graphs, I need a graph visualization tool. I am familiar with graphviz and my sql metadata parser is written in python. So I started looking for a graphviz python binding. The sql graph visualizer should also run on the Google App Engine (GAE). After some experimenting and some googling around, I found out that generating graphics on the server side might not be such a good idea.
