Hybrid Visualizations

[View] Variable Time with Edge Type
Displays different types of edge, showing each in a different color. Allows the user to select which type of edges to show. Provides a time slider to allow the user to show only those nodes available at one or two time slots.
[View] Variable Popularity with Edge Type
Displays different types of edge, showing each in a different color. Allows the user to select which type of edges to show. Drops out data based on a popularity slider, including the number of items the entity has been referenced in and the number of out connections to other entities (out degree).

Occupation-Only Visualizations

[View] Occupation Visualization with Time
All vertices and edges that exist at the time of the top slider appear outlined in red. All that exist at the time of the bottom slider appear outlined in blue. All that exist in both times are purple. Edges between an alive node in blue and an alive node in red that don't overlap in time are shown in green. Includes a Legend that highlights the current node, as well as information about the current occupation and time choice.
[View] Occupation Visualization by Popularity
Displays graphs based on various measures of popularity. Included are the number of items the entity has been referenced in, the number of out connections to other entities (out degree), and the number of in- and out-connections to other entities (degree). As the slider is moved, only those nodes with that popularity or higher are displayed, others are grayed out.
