What is graph visualization?
Graph visualization, sometimes called ‘link analysis’ or ‘network visualization’, is the process of visually presenting networks of connected entities as nodes and links.
If you need to understand connections in your data, there can be huge advantages to looking beyond your ‘flat’ data model with a powerful visualization software.
Why graph visualization?
The world is densely connected. If there’s an interesting relationship in your data, you’ll find value in graph visualization.
Exploring networks as node-link structures instantly makes sense, even to people who’ve never worked with connected data before.
Learn when and how to visualize graphs.
Our brains are great at spotting patterns, but only when the info is in a tangible format. It helps you identify trends and outliers quickly.
See how we used graph visualization to spot patterns in Bitcoin data.
It lets you simplify complexity, see context and understand detail. With one chart, you can get an overview or dive into specific connections.
