Gephi is an open source platform for network analysis (aka social network analysis), allowing you to produce publication-quality vector graphics and to export your analyses for interactive online visualization. You'll learn how to use the software by turning data on voting patterns in the U.S. Senate into an informative graphic revealing the chamber's underlying dynamics.

No prior experience of network analysis required.
