Walrus - Graph Visualization Tool

Walrus - Graph Visualization Tool
Source Code Available The source code to Walrus is now available under the GNU GPL. You may download the source code below. Description Walrus is a tool for interactively visualizing large directed graphs in three-dimensional space. Walrus computes its layout based on a user-supplied spanning tree. Walrus uses 3D hyperbolic geometry to display graphs under a fisheye-like distortion. Walrus is being developed by Young Hyun at CAIDA. Applicability Please note that Walrus currently has the following requirements, restrictions, or limitations which may render it unsuitable for a given problem domain or dataset: Only directed graphs are supported.Only connected graphs with reachable nodes are supported. Galleries The following galleries show graphs of various sizes and complexity. Implemented Features Features Under Consideration more options for coloring objects (such as with a perceptually uniform colorscale)filtering and other interactive processing Requirements Download Changes References Related:  Social Network Analysis

SoNIA - Social Network Image Animator Social Network Image Animator What is it? SoNIA is a Java-based package for visualizing dynamic or longitudinal "network" data. Our intention for SoNIA is to read-in dynamic network information from various formats, aid the user in constructing "meaningful" layouts, and export the resulting images or "movies" of the network, along with information about the techniques and parameter settings used to construct the layouts, and some form of statistic indicating the "accuracy" or degree of distortion present in the layout. What else is SoNIA for? In addition, we hope that SoNIA will have other uses. Another mode of use that SoNIA supports is that of a "browser" for time-based network data. Authors SoNIA is currently under development by Dan McFarland and Skye Bender-deMoll, originally supported by a Research Incentive Award provided by Stanford University's Office of Technology and Liscensing (grant # 2-CDZ-108).

SDSC Image of the Internet Universe on Display at New York’s Museum of Modern Art SDSC Image of the Internet Universe on Display at New York’s Museum of Modern Art February 20, 2008 By Jan Zverina A visualization depicting a frozen moment of activity in the Internet universe using computer tools at the San Diego Supercomputer Center at the University of California, San Diego, will be part of a special exhibit set to open later this month at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The MOMA exhibit, called Design and the Elastic Mind, highlights the dramatic changes we have been experiencing as a society in what once were some of the most established dimensions of human life: time, space, matter, and individuality. Of particular interest is the exploration of the relationship between design and science, particularly the approach to scale. The SDSC image was created by Young Hyun and Bradley Huffaker, researchers with the supercomputer center’s Cooperative Association for Internet Data Analysis (CAIDA) program.
