Software Demonstration: Virtual Observatory for the Study of Online Networks (VOSON)

Fri, May 26, 14:00 to 15:15, Hilton San Diego Bayfront, Floor: 3, Aqua 309


The Virtual Observatory for the Study of Online Networks (VOSON) software is a web-based tool for the collection and analysis (including visualization) of online network data. VOSON was created at the Australian National University and was publicly released in 2006 (Uberlink Corp has provided the VOSON service since 2010) and to date, has been used by around 2500 researchers and students worldwide. VOSON was originally designed for hyperlink network collection and analysis but the latest version of VOSON allows users to construct Twitter networks using data from Twitter’s Enterprise API platform, GNIP. In this software demonstration, WWW hyperlink and Twitter network creation will be demonstrated, as well as basic network visualization and analysis (including export of networks to third-party software).
