New Gephi plugin: add background maps to your networks

I release a new plugin for Gephi: “Map of countries”.

This plugin is useful when you have a network with geolocalized agents. A plugin released by Alexis Jacomy already makes it possible to display your networks according to geographical coordinates. Now you can add country borders as a background!

You can download this plugin directly from your Gephi software on your computer: go to Tools -> Plugins -> Available plugins. Click on “Check for updates” and then look for “Map of Countries” in the list.

Instructions on how to use this plugin are available here: https://marketplace.gephi.org/plugin/maps-of-countries/

You can choose to display a world map:

world

 

 

or a continent:

 

continent

 

 

or a sub-continent:

subcontinent

 

 

 

or a single country (here, Mexico):

country

 

 

Note: as the map is basically made of nodes and edges just like any network, you can run functions on it. Here is the map of the world, with the community detection applied to it:

coloredworld

 

Enjoy!
