Social Networks Visualiser (SocNetV) is an application for the Linux desktop written in C++ /Qt. Its main objective is to provide a sensible means for Social Networks Analysis and Visualisation on the Linux platform, while practicing the K.I.S.S. directive (KISS: Keep it simple, stupid).
The program is completely stand-alone with no strange library dependencies (only Qt4 is required). With it, you can read and visualise various network file formats and/or visually create and modify a network using your mouse. SocNetV will happily compute network and actor properties, such as distances, centralities, diameter etc, for you. Furthermore, it can create simple random networks (lattice, same degree, etc). Be aware, there is no warranty of efficiency, correctness or usability.
If you wish to compile, download the tarball. Then untar it, cd to the new directory, and type:
(or wherever are your Qt4 libs). Afterwards, compile and run by:
What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
· New feature: Power Centrality calculation
· New feature: Information Centrality (Stephenson & Zelen) calculation
· New feature: radial layout according to Power and Information centralities
· New feature: filter (enable/disable) orphan nodes
· New feature: import two-mode affiliation networks (in sociomatrix format)
· New, faster container for GraphicsWidget Nodes based on QHash
· More automagically recreated known data sets
· Allow really large networks to be loaded without crashing. Still too slowly though.
· Nodes are selectable (but not yet editable) in groups
· Fixed bug #518219: Certain Pajek files might crash SocNetV
· Fided bug #515756: Ctrl+F after a node removal may crash SocNetV
· Fixed bug #515758: Random layout crashes SocNetV, if a node is removed
· Updated user manual to new version features.
· Removed counts of outLinkedNodes, inLinkedNodes and reciprocalLinkedNodes because they were causing too much overhead when loading large networks. The relevant LCDs were also dropped from the UI.
