  • the classic Eades forces
  • Fruchterman-Reingold forces

Hummm joreg ...
I dont know how does the wikipedia parser works but when I write "woman" I obtain a nice graph whith strange associated words like :
"Archaism"
"Alcoholism beverage"
And when I write "man" I obtain : "Albert Einstein" ...

@rogerlette: makes sense to me

Ahoi tf & gregsn,

I'm fondly using FDG for a current thesis work, here's a wish list:

  • clicking a node in the graph extends/shows subsequent links
  • a spreadable third InputPin next to "From" and "To" to specify individual colours for the nodes in the graph
  • setting the size of a node in the graph, relative to the number of subsequent links

Any chance of an updated version?
