Gephi Lab

Cox, Flores, Sohl, Zaidi

Gephi is a useful way to visualize networks, but it has some bugs. The questions asked of us for this post are difficult to answer. Gephi breaks up the titles of the journals in the .csv file into individual words – not the whole title. This means that when we select the node “poetry” the nodes it connects us to are “the” and “a.” Ideally, “poetry” would connect to the nodes of all the journals, and then from each journal, it should connect to the various works tagged “poetry.”

Here is the Yifan Hu layout. Gephi would be a lot more useful if some of its bugs were worked out.
