Design: Edges size

By default, all the edges have the same size (width).

It is possible to apply different sizes to edge width depending on their property values. This makes it easier to differentiate edges.

There are two ways of applying a style based on edge size: Static and Dynamic:

  • Static sizing works similarly to the coloring functionality of Linkurious Enterprise.
  • Dynamic sizing allows the analyst to visualize the graph using a scaling function, which helps in immediately distinguishing important values.

For example, the following visualization represents 14 bank accounts that have either sent to or received funds from the account in the center. Which accounts have sent or received the largest transfers? Hard to know by simply looking at this graph:

We are going to dynamically size the different bank transfers according to their amount property in order to visualize the largest ones. For that, let's use the Linear scale function.

  1. Click the upper right corner to open the Design panel.
  2. Select the Captions tab
  3. Click the Set width icon next to the edge type HAS_TRANSFERED.
  4. Choose Dynamic option then select Linear.
  5. From the property list, select Amount property.

Now we can see that the size of the edges with the type HAS_TRANSFERED has changed – the larger the size of the edge, the bigger the amount transfered.
