Gephi is a tool for data analysts and scientists keen to explore and understand graphs. Like Photoshop but for graph data, the user interacts with the representation, manipulate the structures, shapes and colors to reveal hidden patterns. The goal is to help data analysts to make hypothesis, intuitively discover patterns, isolate structure singularities or faults during data sourcing.Gephi is an open-source software for network visualization and analysis. It helps data analysts to intuitively reveal trends and patterns, highlight outliers and tells stories with their data. It uses a 3D render engine to display large graphs in real-time and to speed up the researching. Gephi mixes built-in functionalities and flexible architecture to: explore, analyze, filter, spatialize, manipulate, cluster and export all types of networks.

Gephi is based on a visualize-and-manipulate paradigm which allows any user to explore networks and data properties. Moreover, it is designed to follow the chain of a case study, from data file to printable maps. Gephi is a tool for data analysts and scientists keen to explore and understand graphs. The user can interacts with the representation, manipulates the structures, shapes and colors to reveal hidden patterns. The aim is to help data analysts to make hypothesis, discover patterns, isolate structure singularities or errors during data sourcing.

It is a complementary tool to traditional statistics, as visual thinking with interactive interfaces is recognized to facilitate reasoning. Gpphi is a software for Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA), a paradigm appeared in the Visual Analytics field of research.Real-time visualization is powered by its ad-hoc OpenGL engine. Layout algorithms give the shape to the graph. Gephi provides state-of-the-art algorithms layout algorithms for efficiency and quality. The Layout palette allows user to change layout settings while running, and therefore increase user feedback and experience.

The statistics and metrics framework offer the most common metrics for social network analysis (SNA) and scale-free networks. Gephi filtering the network to select nodes or edges, or both, based on the network structure or data. Users can use interactive user interface to filter the network in real-time. Gephi has its own Data Laboratory to manipulate data columns, search and transform the data. Gephi can read the most of graph file formats but also supports CSV and relational databases import.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
    Gephi provides features such as real-time visualization, layout, metrics, networks over time, create cartography, dynamic filtering, data table and edition, input/output and built-in plugins center for data analysts and scientists keen to explore and understand graphs. Gephi can read the majority of graph file formats as well as CSV and relational databases import such as spreadsheet import wizard, database import and save/load project files. Gephi lets users visualize how a network evolve over time by manipulating the embedded timeline through importing temporal graph with the GEXF file format, running metrics over time (clustering coefficient) and graphing streaming ready. Gephi has a vectorial preview module which lets users put the final touch and care about aesthetics with the customizable PDF, SVG and PNG export an also saved presets. Gephi offers an interactive user interface to filter the network in real-time where users can create complex filter query without scripting, build new networks from the filtering result, and save the user’s favorite queries.
