Force Directed Graphing - Spring Forces as Data Inputs

Apr 5, 2012 at 4:21 PM

Has anyone successfully used NodeXL to creat a force directed graph layout wherein the spring forces were supplied as part of the input data? Trying to create a graph that clusters certain vertices (or alternatively spreads them out) based on their individual characteristics and those of their associated edges

Please see my first reply in "cluster nodes based on distance" at http://nodexl.codeplex.com/discussions/353749.
