Kerracher, N. Tasks and visual techniques for the exploration of temporal graph data. (Thesis)
This thesis considers the tasks involved in exploratory analysis of temporal graph data, and the visual techniques which are able to support these tasks.
There has been an e...

In this paper, we explore graph comics as a medium to communicate
changes in dynamic networks. While previous research
has focused on visualizing dynamic networks for data
