The Fifth Elephant 2013

An Event on Big Data and Cloud Computing

Visualising networks

Submitted by Anand S (@sanand0) on May 2, 2013

Section: Analytics and Visualization Technical level: Intermediate Status: Confirmed & scheduled


This talk shows ways of visualising network data at a large and a small scale.


Network structures are everywhere: in social media, telecom, airports, banking, as well as a number of somewhat unusual places: fraudulent tea auctions, examination halls, and works of fiction.

We'll start with traditional hierarchical and node-link visuals, but a number of new techniques have emerged over the last few years -- such as attribute-driven layouts, pivot graphs, grouped means, etc.

You'll see examples of these applied to real-life datasets, and the stories that these tell.
