Gephi is an amazing piece of software that will have the same impact on social networks as Photoshop had on photography. It’s an open-source and free platform for visualizing and analysing networks and complex systems, used in sociology, chemistry, and many other fields.
In order to support the further development of this platform Gephi Consortium was established in 2011. It provides a legal and practical framework for the participants to work together in promoting and further improving Gephi.
Nodus Labs joined Gephi Consortium as an associate member in July 2011. We will be hosting a regular Berlin Gephi meetup group and promote Gephi’s capabilities for network analysis. We will also be contributing to creating more support materials and manuals for Gephi’s users. Finally, we are really interested in expanding the range of Gephi’s applications beyond research into the arts.
The first event will be held at betahaus on the 18th of August 2011 (time to be announced in this blog), where we will host a workshop in using Gephi to analyze one’s social networks. A short intro of that event will be given at beta-breakfast on the 4th of August at 9.30 am where we’ll give a short overview of Gephi and quickly demonstrate the use of Gephi for social network analysis.
