Network Mapping – Data Visualization
This session will teach participants fundamental concepts in social network analysis, and how to create network graphs using data from social media. When used in combination with other methods, social network analysis can expose relationships, track evolving conversations over time, and help identify emerging coordinated activity. This session will give participants the tools to create compelling network graphs and analyze them using Gephi, an open-source network visualization tool.
No prior experience with Gephi is required, but it is suggested that participants download Gephi on their computer beforehand: https://gephi.org/users/download/
For all levels. Previous knowledge of social media analysis and data visualization is recommended but not required. Participants who wish to follow along need to download and install Gephi.
