Data structures that complex networks (graphs) can model are present almost everywhere. Therefore, it is important to have a software that can visualize and provide insights into such structures. Unfortunately, the vast majority of network visualization and manipulation software currently available has several limitations. For example, Gephi (Java) does not scale well when the number of nodes increases and cannot deal with 3d layout algorithms. Because of those limitations in the currently available network visualization software, we propose to develop a client/server network visualization for FURY. Our proposed system is inspired by the following work: “Harnessing WebGL and WebSockets for a Web-Based Collaborative Graph Exploration Tool”.
