Mapping Movie makers

Jul 11, 2016 at 5:39 AM
I want to map graphically a list of moviemakers and movies.
Suppose that I can get the information of connections between actors and movies as shown in IMDB, I cannot figure out how to set up the table to do what I want.
What should be my columns of the table, so I can feed it into NodeXLPro...

Thanks for your thoughts,

Thank you for the interest in NodeXL!

A possible table structure (we call it an "Edge List") might look like this:

Vertex 1, Vertex 2, Relationship Type, Date, Vertex1 Type, Vertex 2 Type
Actor Name, Director Name, Was Directed By, Date, Actor, Director
Actor Name, Movie Name, Appeared in, Date, Actor, Movie
Actor Name, Actor Name, Co-starred in Moviename, Date, Actor, Actor
Movie Name, Movie Name, Shared Director Name, Date, Movie, Movie
