Large Networks Visualizations go hand in hand with “hairballs” — tangled masses of edges that prevent the viewer from clearly seeing patterns in the network.

This talk will address several ways to overcome this problem:

  1. Adding Interactivity
  2. Edge Bundling
  3. Alternative layouts

For each of these solutions, open-source web-based implementations with d3.js and sigma.js will be shown.
