Combining and Grouping Nodes

Declutter charts to reveal insight

Organizations are relying more and more on graph insight. In turn, the volume and complexity of data being visualized has exploded. The result: overloaded charts and overwhelmed analysts. Combos are the perfect solution.

Simplifying a complex network with combos

Simplify complexity with combos

Combos are visual groupings of nodes and links. It’s easy to style, open, close, nest and move them around. They offer an intuitive and powerful way to explore complex networks without data overload.

Moving nodes and links between different combos

Open the combos to see what’s inside. This ‘detail on demand’ approach brings items into the chart when they’re needed, uncovering insight without cluttering the chart.
