Gephi is wonderfully suited for research and conducting follow-up social network analysis that GIS is too cumbersome for. It is less-well-suited for spatial statistical modeling, which is easier in programs like GeoDA, Stata, R, and GIS.

It is well suited for projects that are more discovery related. If this is a one-time project that we create a visual for, this would definitely make sense to use. If this is an ongoing analysis (monthly for example), we might look to another software that we would be able to automate a little further in how the visualization comes together.

I would recommend Gephi for easy ramp-up and fast graph visualization, especially for SNA (Social Network Analysis) and community discovery in general. It makes it easy to experiment with new techniques and explore your data intuitively, and even intuitively evaluate some more advanced techniques like clustering. However, if the user is already pretty advanced in graph analysis or wants specific algorithms and functions, they should look to see whether those exist in Gephi plug-ins and compare it to plug-ins in R, Cytoscape, yEd and other data visualization solutions. In particular, I have found that Tulip, although, harder to learn at first, fills many of the gaps left by Gephi. Still, it is so easy to get started on Gephi that I might still recommend it to someone who knows they will need a more sophisticated product like Tulip down-the-road.

If anyone ever asked me "what mathematical graphing tool should I use", Gephi would be my first answer. At the very least, it's an excellent prototyping tool. I would be wary, however, if someone needed to use the product for large scale production output. It's finicky at times and does require a little "jiggling of the handle" to get things to work, but I'm sure the kinks will be worked out as the product matures.

It is a perfect tool for analyzing social media and other similar graphed networks (transportation system). It can be used to develop social profile of individuals and I see a lot of scope in the advertising industry of this particular product for micro targeting consumers.

  • Do you know what type of clustering you need to best explain your data? If not, then Gephi GUI is your tool.
  • Once you know what type of clustering algorithms you want, then Gephi as a library is even better.

Recommended for situations where you need to create dynamic or geospatial representation of your data. Gives maximum leverage and scope where you need to use huge data for first draft/preliminary hypothesis checks.
