metrics of weighted graphs

Jun 28, 2015 at 7:10 PM
Dear users/programmers,

It seems that NodeXL (1.0.1.337) is disregarding edges weights while calculating the network metrics. Is that a limitation of the program or am I doing something wrong?

I didn't find any specific indication of capacity or lack of capacity in NodeXL documents I managed to find.

Thanks in advance for ur attention.

Hello!

Thanks for the interest in NodeXL!

In the current version (337), NodeXL uses the SNAP library (http://Snap.Stanford.Edu) to calculate network metrics. The modules used do not consider edge weights.

We do plan an update to upgrade our version of SNAP and may offer additional features at that time. I assume a weighted centrality measure is a high priority for you! Any other metrics or features that you would like to see?

Regards,

Marc
