3Introductiondesigning visualizations of dynamic networks is challengingthe data sets tend to be complexthe Matrix Cube, a novel visual representation and navigation model for dynamic networksthese manipulations can produce a range of different 2D visualizationscompared to node-link diagrams, adjacency matrices are better suited to the visualization of dense networks
4Related Works Node-link diagrams Adjacency Matrices The Space-Time-Cube Metaphor
5Node-link diagramsDynamic network visualization in 1.5D. In Proc. PacificVis, IEEE (2011)Visualizing the evolution of community structures in dynamic social networks. In Proc. EuroVis, Eurographics Assoc. (2011)
9The Space-Time-Cube Metaphor Visualising changes in fund manager holdings in two and a half-dimensions. Information Visualization 3, 4 (2004)Visual unrolling of network evolution and the analysis of dynamic discourse. Information Visualization 2, 1 (2003)
21ConclusionThe cube metaphor was quickly understood. It helped, along with animated transitions, to switch between views.Filtering, brushing and linking were useful.Cell color was always mapped to edge value.Row and column reordering are useful, but can be confusing.Matrix Cubes succeeded in providing a legible visualization where other approaches had failed so far.
