Quid allows users to derive data driven insights from extensive, unstructured data sets. Not only do we collect and analyze the world’s unstructured data, but we also present this data to customers in a way that instigates insight and inspiration, and ultimately adds value to their business. On the engineering side, we’ve been faced with the challenge of visualizing information organized into networks in a meaningful and efficient way. The networks consist of nodes, or vertices, and links between them, also called edges. The vertices stand for real-world entities, and edges represent a variety of relationships between them. This structured illumination helps us understand a given data set faster and more fully. While network generation takes place on Quid’s infrastructure, the interactive visualization runs entirely in your web browser. This means displaying and manipulating thousands of vertices and edges in an environment not known for speed. Quid engineers are always looking for ways to up the amount of data on display, while keeping a responsive frame rate; optimizing the network visualization is one of the more satisfying improvements we have made recently. Read on to find out how we did that! Providing Structure to the Unstructured Some networks are easier to draw than others. Spiders, for example, weave nets that are both […]Read More
