Overcoming the three main challenges of graph visualization

Overcoming the three main challenges of graph visualization

02 Dec 2021 by Alexandra Klacanova · 0 min read GraphAware

Visualising your data in a Knowledge Graph can be incredibly helpful when performing data analysis. It has the potential to make patterns easier to identify and analyse, and your analysis, data, and insights can be much more evident and easy to understand if your data is visualised in a graph. Graph-based visualisation tools make such visualisations incredibly easily understandable and intuitive, making communicating and explaining your findings and conclusions to your colleagues and other stakeholders effortless. That is why I’d like to walk you through the three main challenges people are likely to experience when visualising data in a graph,...

From GraphAware Framework to GraphAware Hume

It has been over 8 years since I’ve written the first lines of code for the GraphAware Neo4j Framework as part of my MSc. thesis. That’s when the name GraphAware, as well as the (then) one-man show Neo4j consulting company was born. It is therefore my bittersweet duty to take you on a small trip down the memory laneand announce that we have decided to discontinue the development and support of the Framework and all of its modules.

Few years ago I met Michal Bachman and some other GraphAware heroes at GraphConnect in San Francisco. In those days I also had my job interview for the company. Surprisingly, for the first time since I started my journey in IT, I didn’t find myself explaining how I could be useful despite not having a strong background in engineering and software development. On the contrary, Michal was interested in all the things I could do because of my non-traditional curriculum, with a PhD in Cultural Anthropology, some experience in JavaScript graph visualisation, and a genuine passion for networks and graphs....

It’s been a year since I published the Graph Technology Landscape 2019 post on GraphAware’s blog. I consider this a success story because it got a lot of attention and publicity. The landscape was mentioned many times at different places; it was used by Emil Eifrem in his GraphTour and GraphConnect opening keynotes, it was displayed in conference halls, and I received many, many useful comments and feedback. I was even invited to Rik van Bruggen Graphistania Podcast to talk about it, and the episode was referred to in the Top 5 Neo4j Podcasts of 2019 blog posts as well....

Node Degrees in Neo4j 2.1

23 Jul 2014 by Michal Bachman · 3 min read Neo4j GraphAware Beginner

Efficient counting of relationships in Neo4j was the cornerstone of my Master Thesisand the reason the very first GraphAware Frameworkmodule called the Relationship Count Module was born. The improvements in Neo4j 2.1around dense nodes and the addition of getDegree(…) methods on the Node interface made me eager to do some benchmarking around relationship counts again.

Random Graph Models (Part I)

16 Jul 2014 by Vojtěch Havlíček · 4 min read Neo4j GraphAware Intermediate

When one obtains a graph data from a measurement on a real world network, it is sometimes useful to make comparison witha random graph. Such graph is characterised by certain degree distribution, which you can imagine to be a list of degreesof nodes present in the network. The most interesting distributions have certain functional dependence which allowsone to infer what processes are dominant in formation of the network. The processes consequently characterise therelationships between the nodes.
