Network visualization site

Visualcomplexity.com is a resource space for anyone interested in the visualization of complex networks. The project's main goal is to leverage a critical understanding of different visualization methods across a series of disciplines as diverse as biology, social networks or the World Wide Web. The site displays hundreds of projects that "either provide advancement in terms of visual depiction techniques/methods or show conceptual uniqueness and originality in the choice of a subject." Whatever one's level of understanding of the workings of the software used in these projects or of the depicted networks themselves, the displays are aesthetically stunning.

For more information about information visualization the site includes a page of resource links to related sites, including SPIDER: Social Psychology of Information Diffusion--Educational Resources and An Atlas of Cyberspaces, (maps and graphic representations of the geographies of the Internet).
