I would like to present some new enhancements for SVG Export. Developments are very active in this branch, thanks to strong needs coming from Webatlas studies.
Interpreting complex networks remains a challenge and though our tool is designed in this aim, exporting (and in some cases printing) network maps is often necessary.
Rich SVG Export
|New settings panel with preview window: It improves user experience with allowing editing many design parameters and seeing directly the result. WYSIWYG in a sense.|
|Line and arrow links: Configure them with many settings. In addition to the cuve mode.|
|White disk: A round shape around the node is drawn to hide edges fror other nodes. It increases readability of the map.|
|Mini labels: Small labels are shown at extremities of edges to enhance network interpretation.|
|Better font support: You can either personalize fonts or let the computing use the one from the graph visualization. In this case the SVG exported will look like as the graph window.|
Here are some examples of SVG exports:
You can see more networks in the Exhibition section.
The new SVG Exporter will be included in next Gephi release. Additionally it will serve then for the creation of a PDF exporter.
In addition of this presentation here is a list of software able to edit SVG Files. The most known and powerful tools are Inkscape and Adobe Illustrator. They can also create PDF in output.
