The Open Graph Viz Platform
Gephi is an interactive visualization and exploration platform for all kinds of networks and complex systems, dynamic and hierarchical graphs.
Runs on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. Gephi is open-source and free.
Exploratory Data Analysis: intuition-oriented analysis by networks manipulations in real time.
Link Analysis: revealing the underlying structures of associations between objects, in particular in scale-free networks.
Social Network Analysis: easy creation of social data connectors to map community organizations and small-world networks.
Biological Network analysis: representing patterns of biological data.
Poster creation: scientific work promotion with hi-quality printable maps.
Gephi is a tool for people that have to explore and understand graphs. Like Photoshop but for data, the user interacts with the representation, manipulates the structures, shapes and colors to reveal hidden properties. The goal is to help data analysts to make hypothesis, intuitively discover patterns, isolate structure singularities or faults during data sourcing. It is a complementary tool to traditional statistics, as visual thinking with interactive interfaces is now recognized to facilitate reasoning. This is a software for Exploratory Data Analysis, a paradigm appeared in the Visual Analytics field of research.
