[TODO] Dynamics in GDF (CSV)

Post by feczo » 03 May 2010 08:31

Hi,

I know XML above all, but I still find much quicker to build CSV / GDF files with Openoffice, specially when I have thousands of nodes
from a database extract. Any chance to have Gephi recognize start/stop attributes from a GDF file to import it as
dynamic ?

I know that in the meantime I have to build a program to construct GEXF, but this would be a nice feature to have

Thanks

Hi,

It's not part of the official format specification, but you're not the only one who'd appreciate this feature. I filled the Idea List.

Hi,

Is it possible to do that now ?
Because when I upload a csv with dynamic data, it doesn't work for the edges

Example (csv) :
Source target id Weight
n1 n3 1 <[2010.0, 2012.0, 2.0); [2012.0, 2014.0, 2.0); [2024.0, 2026.0, 9.0]>

During the upload, I cannot change the format of the Weight column = Float

When I take a look in the data laboratory, the weight is equal to 1.

You need to convert Weight column to dynamic first.
To do this, go to Data Laboratory click on ''Convert column to dynamic", choose Weight and make sure to check "Replace column" option.
Then import the spreadsheet with dynamic weight.

Thanks Eduardo

I don't find anything about "Convert column to dynamic" in the data laboratory.

Is it here ?

I'm working on the french version of Gephi 0.8.2.

If it's that, I checked all the boxs, but when I upload my csv, I still can't change the format of the weight variable (float is grey).

Hi,
It's the option in the attached screenshot (make sure to choose edges table)
