Join Martin Hadley for an in-depth discussion in this video Use visNetwork with igraph, part of R: Interactive Visualizations with htmlwidgets.
- [Instructor] visNetwork is an excellent tool…for creating interactive network diagrams.…It's built on top of the vis.js library,…which really excels in this area.…But it's not a tool for analyzing graphs.…That's where igraph comes in.…igraph is an extremely powerful toolkit…for social network analysis and graph theory.…igraph is a library made available to both…R and Python users through dedicated packages.…The igraph package operates on objects…of the class igraph,…which are very easy to create…and provide a consistent approach…to graph analytical problems.…
These objects can then be given directly to visNetwork.…I'm going to demonstrate why the igraph library's…so useful and worth investing your time in.…Let's go to our exercise files in our studio.…Okay, so let's open up our file, igraph and visNetwork.R.…I'm going to minimize my environment…because I don't need it for these exercises.…At the top of the script file,…we load the tidyverse library, with command, enter.…This loads the standard libraries…from the tidyverse ecosystem.…
Start by learning to manage packages and structure data for visualizations with the tidyverse and the pipe operator. Then there is an important question: Which library should you choose? The course introduces five popular options: Leaflet, Plotly, Highcharter, visNetwork, and DataTables (DT). Instructor Martin Hadley shows how to use these libraries to create scattergeo, choropleth, and geolines maps; stacked bar charts, scatter charts, bubble charts, and heat maps; treemaps and time series charts; interactive networks and graphs; and responsive, interactive data tables. Plus, learn how to customize your visualizations with legends and tooltips, and extract click information for Shiny apps.
