MiniVan is an application enabling users to publish a network on the web in order to let anyone explore it.
To achieve this, MiniVan offers various views of the network so that it becomes easy to perform visual and/or statistical analysis of it:
- Basemap of the spatialized graph
- Adjacency matrix
- Node list
- Various statistics
Then, to ease the exploration of the network's many quantitative and qualitative values attached to nodes and edges, MiniVan proposes many ways to "dive" into the different modalities that can be found in the data.
What's more, once the network is published, it becomes possible to integrate views of the application directly within articles in order to enable the resitution of insights found through analysis.
Finally, MiniVan lets its users print any of its views very easily so one can use them to show results or even use them as teaching material.
