Clustering by Group Attribute

Sep 6, 2012 at 1:48 AM

Hi,

I have a rather large data set with 2000+ vertices, which i am attempting to create a sort of 'network graph' with all the vertices laid out in a circle and the edges connecting different nodes within the circle. I would like to group the vertices by attribute, but am having a lot of trouble. I have coloured each of the groups a different colour and no matter what i've tried the vertices colour are interspersed around the circle, rather than being in clusters of colour like i would like. I have tried using the Group by Vertices Attribute with no success (but maybe i just haven't done it right?). Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Marissa

Hello! Thanks for the interest in NodeXL!

NodeXL has a column in the Vertices worksheet called "Layout Order".

This column is often hidden in a NodeXL worksheet, so first select NodeXL>Show/Hide>Workbook Columns>Show All (or just "Layout").

The Layout Order column can contain any value and will determine the rank order in which vertices are displayed.
