Providing a scalable overview of long sequences of such dynamic networks remains challenging due to the underlying large-scale data containing elusive topological changes. We propose two complementary pixel-based visualizations, which reflect occurrences of selected sub-networks (motifs) and provide a time-scalable overview of dynamic networks: a network-level census (motif significance profiles) linked with a node-level sub-network metric (graphlet degree vectors) views to reveal structural changes, trends, states, and outliers. The network census captures significantly occurring motifs compared to their expected occurrences in random networks and exposes structural changes in a dynamic network. The sub-network metrics display the local topological neighborhood of a node in a single network belonging to the dynamic network. The linked pixel-based visualizations allow exploring motifs in different-sized networks to analyze the changing structures within and across dynamic networks, for instance, to visually analyze the shape and rate of changes in the network topology. We describe the identification of visual patterns, also considering different reordering strategies to emphasize visual patterns. We demonstrate the approach's usefulness by a use case analysis based on real-world large-scale dynamic networks, such as the evolving social networks of Reddit or Facebook.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2022-08-30T10:17:31Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Jäckle, Dominik</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Fuchs, Johannes</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dcterms:title>Motif-Based Visual Analysis of Dynamic Networks</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Schreck, Tobias</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2022-08-25T08:27:36Z</dcterms:issued> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Cakmak, Eren</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Keim, Daniel A.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Brandes, Ulrik</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2022-08-30T10:17:31Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Brandes, Ulrik</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Jäckle, Dominik</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Keim, Daniel A.</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Cakmak, Eren</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
