Visualization of Data to Understand Network Evolution

This seems to be an interesting site to take a look at to understand how we can better visualize complex and detailed data. Gapminder is a Swedish foundation that develops information technology for provision of free statistics in new visual and animated ways. What I found interesting was that Google hosts the software on its servers. It seems to have started with a focus on world development indicators. There is a video of a talk by one of the Gapminder researcher if you are interested to learn more.

But I started wondering if there is a possibility of adapting it to visualize networks of the kinds that we explored in class--especially if we get a collaborative initiative with some of the data providers.

Love to hear what others think after you have had a chance to take a look at it.
