Description

WestGrid is pleased to present an online tutorial on Graph Visualization with Gephi (http://gephi.org), a leading open-source package for network (graph) visualization. In this hour-long webinar, we'll take a look at the ways Gephi modules can import, visualize, and manipulate all types of networks and use hardware acceleration to speed up rendering, allowing interactive exploration of networks up to tens of thousands of nodes.

Gephi features multiple highly configurable force-directed layout algorithms where users can specify speed, gravity, repulsion, etc. and see graphs adjust dynamically in real time, while optimizing graph readability. Gephi also includes many metrics to measure graphs, such as the degree of connectedness, density, clustering coefficients, path lengths, modularity, and many others.

Since Gephi is a tool for exploratory data analysis, its primary use is on personal rather than HPC systems, although the Gephi toolkit (not covered in this presentation) provides access to Gephimodules from any Java application that can be launched from a command line.
