Visualize Coinpath® results using Gephi

visualize using Gephi

Last week, we added a new parameter (Graph XML/ GEXF) on our Coinpath® APIs. Using this parameter, you can import API results in the GEXF file format and visualize them using tools like Gephi.

What is the GEXF file format?

GEXF (Graph Exchange XML Format) is a language for describing complex network structures, their associated data, and dynamics. There are multiple graph visualization tools, and libraries support the GEXF file format. The Gephi community primarily developed the GEXF specification.

What is Gephi?

Gephi is an open-source visualization and exploration software for all kinds of graphs and networks. You can download Gephi from here.

How to visualize the GEXF file using Gephi?

First, you need to download and install Gephi. Next, we need to import our results in the GEXF format.

Once you download the GEXF file, you need to open it with the Gephi application. For that, you can use the following instructions.

File → Open → Select .gexf file.

While importing the file, it will show you a few options, you can accept them as they are. Once the file is imported, you will see visualization which you can manipulate using options provided by Gephi. For a Gephi quick tutorial check this guide.
