Data Visualization Review: Gephi, Free Graph Exploration Software
I do not often get to play with networks, yet I find them fascinating and full of knowledge gathering potential. The data visualization works of Moritz Stefaner, Jer Thorp, and Mark Lombardi captivate me. I am intrigued by relationships, how we perceive them, and how we can understand them. Gephi, the "Open Graph Viz Platform", is not just for the hobbiest node nerd. It is a hardcore, professional tool for network researchers and other smarty pants. So what is Gephi capable off? Gephi interface displaying airline traffic data. Pros — Options! Cons — Interface is a bit cluttered. Main interface displaying the Diseasome data. Review Overall, Gephi is a useful and interesting tool. There are some plugins available for Gephi that extend the functionality. The only thing keeping Gephi from being a professional grade tool is its bugginess and lack of documentation. Graph of Minard's data using Gephi and the GeoLayout plugin. For the Purists Gephi is a purist's delight.
