Does the calculation of maximum geodesic distance (diameter) take into account the fact that the graph is directed ? It seems that Nodexl doesn't...
(I've build a very simple example with the following list of edges: AB, BC, CD, DB, DA; with both directed and undirected options I get a diameter of 2...)
Am I wrong somewhere ?
Thank in advance
AB



Hello, Alvaro,
NodeXL doesn't take the graph's directedness into account when it calculates geodesic distances. It treats all graph as undirected for these particular metrics.

Hello Tony,
I understand, But it seems to me that node metrics (e.g. betweenness) do take directedness into account. Am I right ?
Thanks Alvaro



Hi, Alvaro:
The graph's directedness is ignored when calculating PageRank, closeness centrality and eigenvector centrality. It
is taken into account when calculating betweenness centrality, degree, indegree and outdegree.

ok, thanks
