Networks are typically visualized with force-based or spectral layouts. These algorithms lack reproducibility and perceptual uniformity because they do not use a node coordinate system. The layouts can be difficult to interpret and are unsuitable for assessing differences in networks. To address these issues, we introduce hive plots ( for generating informative, quantitative and comparable network layouts. Hive plots depict network structure transparently, are simple to… CONTINUE READING
