Network Graphs:

Visualization, Analysis and Navigation

Informatics researchers have long used network visualization and analysis to explore the functions of molecular, gene, and ecosystem interaction networks. Network visualization has been around for quite some time now and and it has recently caught on beyond academic specialties such as bioinformatics network analysis and co-authorship and co-citation analysis. Tools for network analysis have been developed for academia, government, and business applications. As the technology available to do analysis and visualization of network data has evolved, network graph visualization has been explored as not only a tool for analysis but also as a navigation tool — using the logical connections and clustering in a network graph as a guide.
