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.
Exploring networks as node-link structures instantly makes sense, even to people who’ve never worked with connected data before.
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.
Network visualization lets you simplify complexity, see context and understand detail. With one chart, you can get an overview or dive into specific connections.
Through interactive data analysis, you gain deeper knowledge and understand context. That’s hard to achieve with a static, aggregated visualization.

Who needs to visualize networks?
Connected data is all around us. We help organizations solve their biggest challenges.
Law enforcement & security
Join the dots between people, places and events and filter out the noise that stops you seeing the connections and preventing crime.
Create interactive visualizations that reveal bottlenecks and vulnerabilities in connected critical infrastructure.
Uncover unusual activities to identify, predict and prevent all kinds of fraud: from insurance scams to VAT fraud.
Make sense of vast, complex and densely-connected data to uncover cyber security threats and help keep networks secure.
