Why Visualize Networks?

Unlock the insight in your connected data

What is network visualization?

Network visualization, graph visualization or link analysis is the process of visually presenting networks of connected entities as links and nodes.

Nodes represent data points and links represent the connections between them.

To look beyond your flat data model and understand connections in your data, you need powerful network visualization tools.

Why visualize networks?

The world is densely connected. If there’s an interesting relationship in your data, you’ll find value in network visualization.


It’s intuitive

Exploring networks as node-link structures instantly makes sense, even to people who’ve never worked with connected data before.


It’s fast

Our brains are great at spotting patterns, but only when the info is in a tangible format. Network visualization helps you identify trends and outliers quickly.


It’s scalable

Network visualization lets you simplify complexity, see context and understand detail. With one chart, you can get an overview or dive into specific connections.


It’s insightful

Through interactive data analysis, you gain deeper knowledge and understand context. That’s hard to achieve with a static, aggregated visualization.
