An user-friendly tool for the analysis and visualization of networks, freely available for download at

NOESIS Network Analyzer main features

  • Supported network file formats (for analyzing your own networks):

    • GML

    • GraphML

    • GDF

  • Adjustable network visualization:

    • Drag & drop graphical user interface.

    • Automatic layout methods (Fruchterman-Reingold, Kamada-Kawai, hierarchical, radial, random, and regular layouts).

    • Multiple visualization options (styles, colors & sizes).
    • Export network images in SVG, PNG, or JPEG format.

  • Network models:

    • Random networks: Erdös-Renyi, Gilbert, Watts-Strogatz, Barabasi-Albert, and Price models.

    • Regular networks: Star, ring, tandem, mesh, toroidal, hypercube, and binary tree networks.

  • Network analysis techniques: 

    • Network structural properties (degree, degree assortativity, eccentricity, average path length, closeness, decay, betweenness, PageRank, HITS, eigenvector centrality, Katz centrality, clustering coefficient, connected components, link betweenness, link embeddedness, link neighborhood overlap...).

    • Community detection methods (Kernighan-Lin, Newman-Girvan, Radicchi, hierarchical, fast greedy, spectral, and BigCLAM community detection).

System requirements: Java Runtime Environment version 8 (JRE8). 

NOTE: The efficient implementation of network analysis techniques makes use of multiple cores in multicore processors when available.
