Visualizing Graph Data with Corey Lanum

14th October, 2015 Estimated reading time 2–2 minutes

Graph visualization is probably the most powerful tool we have for understanding complex connected data.

But how should you get started with graph visualization? It’s not a simple topic, and specialist know-how can be difficult to obtain. That’s why our graph visualization expert, Corey Lanum, is writing a book on the topic.

How is this book different?

This is the first book to focus on real-world graph visualization.

It is not aimed at academic practitioners or researchers. Instead, Corey has condensed his 15+ years’ experience of building visualization solutions for government and business. He shares the lessons he has learned along the way, helping you to answer the questions you need to ask when designing and building your own graph visualization solution.

Topics covered include:

  • Graph data concepts
  • Real world graph visualization use cases
  • Overviews of different tools, including introductions to Gephi, Cytoscape, D3.JS and KeyLines
  • How to encourage user engagement
  • Managing large, dynamic and geospatial graphs

We would love your input

The writing process is still on going. Corey would love to get your feedback on the content so far. We encourage you to let us know your thoughts – good and bad – using the book’s forum.
