Style: Nodes size
By default all the nodes have the same size. It is possible though to choose to map the size of nodes to certain properties. This way it will be possible to visualize that property.
This technique only applies to quantitative properties.
This works similarly to the coloring functionality of Linkurious. Coloring and sizing can be combined to make powerful visualizations.
For example Andreessen Horowitz is a leading VC firm with 127 edges to different companies it has funded. Which companies have received the most funding? Hard to know by simply looking at this graph.
We are going to size the different companies according to their
funding_total property in order to visualize which are the most
We click on the upper right corner to open up the design panel.
We move the mouse to
In addition to being able to color the nodes according to that property,
it is possible to size the nodes.
Linkurious can do that for any property that has numerical values.
We are going to select the
A new menu appears.
It makes it possible to set the
Min/max size difference, the
difference in size between the node with the lowest value and the node
with the highest value.
If we want to view the difference in
funding_total we set the
Min/max size difference to
Now we can see that few outliers appear as nodes larger than the other nodes.
The larger nodes represent companies like Airbnb, Box, Pinterest or Zynga. We can quickly identify them as the most successful investments of Andreessen Horowitz.
