New MediaWiki network maps integrated in NodeXL Pro

Wikimap Social Network Analysis

The NodeXL Pro MediaWiki Network importer has been updated to include the text and an image to represent each page. Collections of interlinked Wiki pages form a kind of concept network that can reveal interesting associations and unexpected connections.  Any page on a publicly accessible MediaWiki is accessible using this importer.

The above network map is a 1.5 level
Article-Article network of the Wikipedia page for 
Social Network Analysis

Labels are generated by the Words and Word Pairs analysis of frequently used text in clusters of wiki pages.

You can download the NodeXL Options File used to create the map at the bottom of this page in NodeXL Graph Gallery.
