Visualization of networks among people

At the Stanford MediaX Innovation Ecosystems Summit today, a few visualization teams presented their tools to show how networks are really structured:

1.  Gephi

“Gephi is an interactive visualization and exploration platform for all kinds of networks and complex systems, dynamic and hierarchical graphs.”

2. Quid

They define as their “mission to Map the World’s Technologies”

3. DotLink360

“dotlink360 is a visual analytic tool that provides capabilities to gain systemic insight into the complex structure and evolving dynamics of interfirm innovation activities in converging business ecosystems.”

4. LinkedIn Maps

This takes all of your LinkedIn connections and finds groups among them.  The picture attached below, with five fairly separated clouds, is drawn from my LinkedIn connections.
