world map overlay

Postby mromaine » 30 Mar 2010 18:58

Hi, thanks for an awesome application. Came across Gephi recently and am really loving the output.

I've got data that is country / region specific. What is the easiest way to map nodes to certain "countries" or regions on a map? My data comes from a DB so I can format a CSV, etc. as appropriate. I just haven't found much documentation on file formats and how to structure custom data into them to help Gephi render accordingly.

Any help and pointers much appreciated. Thanks!

Hi,

You'll find all docs on file formats supported here. Our support of CSV is very basic (edge list) and can't encode associated data for now. So you have 2 options:
* exporting your data in CSV and transform it to a graph format listed above.
* directly connect Gephi to your DB and process queries (File > Import Database), but this feature is currently not well developed.
