Animating a Hyperlink Network

Managed to finally overcome a major presentation problem when showing longitudinal social network analysis data.

The data is from a series of issuecrawls conducted on the Brazilian presidential elections from July 2010 to September 2010. Its a small sample.

The size and central position of a node-site represents the betweenness centrality score. The thickness of a link and arrow represent the strength of the link. Green lines show the appearance of new hyperlinks between existing sites and red lines denote the disappearance of a link.
