One of the most powerful ways to understand data is to recognize theways in which each datum-person, product, etc-connects to another.Visualizing these graphs makes it possible to literally see theconnections. The graph model consists of data elements, called nodes,and edges, which are the relationships between these nodes. Graphsmake the relationships between the data elements a core part of thedata structure, which means you can better comprehend the meaning ofyour data. And visual data is easier for everyone to understand.Visualizing Graph Data teaches readers not only how to build graphdata structures, but also how to create their own dynamic, interactivevisualizations using a variety of tools. This book is loaded withfascinating examples and case studies to show the real-world value ofgraph visualizations. It begins by teaching fundamental graph conceptsand techniques used to visualize graph data. Next, readers drill down tolearn how to create their own useful visualizations, as well asadditional tools. Readers also learn how to model data, create the bestgraphs for their particular audience, handle big data, and depicttemporal and spatial data. By the end of this book, readers know to askthe right questions of data to create powerful visualizations. Key Features:* Real-world case studies* Teaches techniques for creating effective visualizations* Shows fundamental visualization concepts* Includes tutorials using the best visualization tools AUDIENCEA basic understanding of RDBMS systems is assumed. No previousknowledge of graph databases required. ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGYThe graph way of thinking about data is becoming more and more popularas people value the relationships between bits of data as much as the datathemselves. Key to understanding the complex structure of connected data isbeing able to visualize those connections.
