I am dealing with a set of graphs of moderate order (a few thousand nodes, a few hundred thousand edges) which however also have a temporal component.
This means that certain nodes and / or edges are active only during specific time intervals.
At the moment, I am handling this temporal nature "manually" by basically querying the graph at a specified time instance and rendering it via yEd when I have to.
BUT, when you are trying to depict the temporal evolution of the network, the nodes "jump around" because their position is not fixed throughout the visualisation.
I have tried to plot the full network (ignoring the temporal aspect), visualise that to fix the position of the nodes and then enable / disable each edge depending on the temporal dimension with some success. However, this is a hack and it takes quite a bit of effort marshaling all this information. I wonder if there is something already out there taking care of this (?)
Does anyone know of any similar (to yEd) piece of software for the visualisation of dynamic networks?
