Visualizing complex networks: great free resource site
I discovered a great site Visual Complexity for anyone interested in network visualization with the aim to leverage a critical understanding of different visualization methods, across a series of disciplines, as diverse as Biology, Social Networks or the World Wide Web.
Topics covered include: (number in brackets is the number of examples)
- Art (30)
- Biology (36)
- Business Networks (20)
- Computer Systems (22)
- Food Webs (7)
- Internet (26)
- Knowledge Networks (89)
- Multi-Domain Representation (38)
- Music (16)
- Others (29)
- Pattern Recognition (16)
- Social Networks (54)
- Transportation Networks (29)
- World Wide Web (42)
The section on Social Networks is particularly good.
The site is run by Manuel Lima who is an interaction designer, information architect and design researcher. Manuels website is http://www.mslima.com/myhome.cfm
