What is the name of the tool?
| Tool Class
To what "family" does the tool belong? Pick as many categories as are appropriate. EG: Data Collection, Security, etc. The wiki will automatically create a link to the relevant tool class.
|Data Visualization, Network Mapping, Data|
Who made the tool? Sometimes the tool name and the developer name are the same, and sometimes, they are different.
|The Gephi Consortium|
| Date Created
What was the date when the tool was first launched?
| Still Maintained?
Do the developers of the tool continue to work on it, adding features and fixing problems?
| Open Source?
Is the tool's source code original source code freely available and may it be redistributed and modified? (This makes it possible for users to employ the tool for free, with some technical effort.)
Pick the platforms on which the user would primarily use the tool. Be as selective as possible. If a tool works mainly in the browser, select "Web". If the user can technically load the interface on a smartphone but have a very poor experience, do not select "Android" or "iOS". "Mac" and "PC" are for apps that must be installed to a machine in order to run, as opposed to running from a browser.
What is the main website where a user can learn more about the tool? (Remember to include "http://)."
| Payment Structure
How, if at all, does a user pay to use the tool. Select all that apply: "Free" if there are components of a service that can be used for free; "Paid" if payment is required (either one-time, or at a given rate upon use) for use of the tool's full functionality; "subscription" if a monthly payment is required.
| Languages Supported
What languages does the app's interface support? Note: some apps allow users to communicate in other languages but require the user to use an English language interface. In this case, the app is considered only to support "English".
|English, Czech, German, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Russian, Chinese, Japanese|
| Skill Level Needed
Gephi is an open-source software for network visualization and analysis. It helps data analysts to intuitively reveal patterns and trends, 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 exploration. Gephi combines built-in functionalities and flexible architecture to explore, analyze, spatialize, filter, cluster, manipulate, and export all types of networks.
What Makes This Tool Different from Others in its Class?
A very similar tool to Gephi is NodeXL. Like NodeXL, Gephi can map a network using a variety of different patterns. NodeXL is able to gather information from social networks directly - Gephi must import. Gephi has a slightly simpler interface, since NodeXL is a modification to Excel.
