It is possible to represent bipartite networks with NodeXL?

Yes, a multimodal network can be represented by adding a column to the vertices worksheet that contains a "Type" for each node.

This coulmn can then be used to drive the Shape or other display characteristics of the chart.

You can also use the cluster mechanism to map all nodes in one category to the same cluster.

Marc,

I'm using the 1.0.1.113 version of the program.

I followed his advice about the inclusion of the column "type", in the vertices worksheet. However, I could not generate the bipartite graph through "use the cluster mechanism to map all nodes in one category to the same cluster".

What steps should I do to generate this graph?

Thank you and I am awaiting your return.

jusaragiotto:

The cluster mechanism that Marc mentioned is not available in version 1.0.1.113 of NodeXL.  It was introduced in a later version.

In the latest version of NodeXL, available on our CodePlex Downloads tab (http://nodexl.codeplex.com/releases), you can group vertices by attribute using NodeXL, Analysis, Groups, Group by Vertex Attribute.
