SocNetV v1.4 released!

SocNetV: Social Network Analysis and Visualization Software

SocNetV v1.4 released!

Today is a fine day to release another SocNetV update. Version 1.4 brings consistency to the application since it fixes many long standing bugs (i.e. #514264 and #713617) while ups its capabilities with new features.

For instance a new feature is that SocNetV may now layout the social network so that node sizes reflect a selected prominence index score of each node. And this can be done for every index that SocNetV calculates: Degree, Closeness, Influence Range Closeness, Betweeness, PageRank, Proximity, Eccentricity, Power, etc.

Furthermore,  version 1.4 lets you import edgelist1 UCINET format i.e.

    1 2 4
    1 3 2
    1 6 2
    1 8 2 

Also, we changed the shortcuts for node and edge removal to Ctrl+Backspace and Shift+Backspace respectively.  Furthermore, you can now click on a node and then press Ctrl+Backspace to remove it (the same goes for edges).

As usual a new but well-known dataset has been added, with four different versions. It is Freeman's EIES networks which you can recreate either in multirelational mode (32 actors) or in one single relation of 48 actors.

See the complete ChangeLog for more info and complete list of bugfixes. 

Source code, packages and executables for Linux, Mac OS X and Windows are available to download.

Have fun!

    Load and save to GraphML, but you can also import most network file formats (GML, Pajek, UCINET, GraphViz, Adjacency, EdgeList etc).

  • Network analysis

    Compute distances, eccentricity, connectedness, clique census, triad census, and Prominence indices (i.e. eigenvector, betweenness and information centrality, promixity prestige, pagerank and more)

  • Visualization

    Apply intuitive visualization layouts on undirected/directed graphs, based on prominence scores or force-directed models.

  • Famous networks

    Automatically recreate known social network datasets such as Padgett's Families

  • Random networks

    Create random networks using one of the supported models (scale-free, Erdős–Rényi, lattice, small worlds)

  • Web Crawler

    Easily visualize and analyze networks of linked web pages and sites through the built-in web crawler.

  • Multi-relational

    Work with multiple relations concurrently. SocNetV supports loading, editing and saving multirelational social networks.
