I just popped up a tutorial on how to get started visualising corporate networks with data from OpenCorproates using Gephi:


The tutorial includes walktrhough steps on:
- how to get data out of OpenCorproates using OpenRefine
- how to get data out of OpenRefine in a form that can be opened in Gephi
- how to get started using Gephi to visualise the corporate network.

The tutorial covers process steps in getting the data out of OpenCorporates and into some sort of visual shape in Gephi.

Planned for the horizon are further tutorials about how we might actually start analysing these networks and what sorts of things we might use them to investigate.

If you can't wait, this post on “Drug Deal” Network Analysis  http://blog.ouseful.info/2012/11/09/drug-deal-network-analysis-with-gephi-tutorial/ may give you some clues about how to get started...!
