Example of Gephi network visualization.[2]

Gephi is an open-source network analysis and visualization software package written in Java on the NetBeans platform,[3] initially developed by students of the University of Technology of Compiègne (UTC)[4] in France. Gephi has been selected for the Google Summer of Code in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013.

Gephi has been used in a number of research projects in the university, journalism and elsewhere, for instance in visualizing the global connectivity of New York Times content[5] and examining Twitter network traffic during social unrest[6][7] along with more traditional network analysis topics.[8]

The Gephi Consortium is a French non-profit corporation which supports development of future releases of Gephi. Members include SciencesPo, Linkfluence, WebAtlas, and Quid.[9]

Gephi inspired the LinkedIn InMaps[10] and was used for the network visualizations for Truthy.[11]
