Network exploration in Gephi goes hand in hand with selecting visual properties. Let’s paint and resize the graph nodes based on some of their measures.
You will learn about network measures in Chapter 8, Measuring Networks and Chapter 11, Unearthing the Network Structure. For now, it suffices to know several basic facts about two of them, as detailed in the following table:
|Degree||The number of immediate neighbors—adjacent nodes. The degree is a non-negative integer number. The larger the degree of a food item is, the more nutrients it provides. The larger the degree of a nutrient is, the more food items provide it.|
|Community structure||Nodes form tightly knit groups called communities. All foods and nutrients ...|
