Why this couse?
This is a video course for the students, researchers, data scientists who want to perform some analysis on graphs and networks for research, reporting and publication purposes. This course shows how you can use yEd software tool to perform the analysis on graphs.
What is yEd?
yEd is a powerful desktop application that can be used to quickly and effectively generate high-quality diagrams. You can create diagrams manually, or import your external data for analysis. Its automatic layout algorithms arrange even large data sets with just the press of a button. yEd is freely available and runs on all major platforms: Windows, Unix/Linux, and Mac OS X.
Learn to visualize data
This is the first course on yEd based graph visualization and analysis. This course is a core component of the ‘Learn Scientific Programming’ initiative. However, this is not a course for learning graph theory, only the visualization aspects are emphasized which you will use for reporting purposes.

Graph analysis such as Centrality
Graph geometric transformations
