1998 deposit-license Schneider, Volker Wagner, Dorothea Explorations into the Visualization of Policy Networks application/pdf 2011-03-24T10:13:22Z Raab, Jörg Wagner, Dorothea Brandes, Ulrik Raab, Jörg Visualization is an important aspect of both exploration and communication of categorical as well as relational data. Graphical displays of policy networks are particularly attractive, since they enable authors to display in a compact way relevant actors in a network, how they are related to each other, and what the overall structure looks like. Sociograms were early companions of social network analysis, but have received surprisingly little attention during the following decades. Only in the last few years, easy accessability of quality computing and graphic equipment has revived a now rapidly growing interest.<br /><br />In this paper, we analyze the problem of visualizing policy networks. We first argue why network visualization is important, yet non-trivial. Then, we show that current methods are somewhat ad hoc in their attempt to convey information contained in a network. Our main contribution is a systematic approach to network visualization, closely following the general principles of information visualization. It provides a generic formalization which may serve as a guideline for further developments. eng 2011-03-24T10:13:22Z Kenis, Patrick Schneider, Volker Brandes, Ulrik Kenis, Patrick
