Flourish for Simple Network Visualizations

[Online] Flourish is an online tool for "Beautiful and easy data visualization and storytelling". There are an amazing variety of standard and unusual visualization types available, one of which is a network (node-link / graph) diagram. While Gephi is my tool of choice for complicated networks, Flourish works great for simpler networks – interactive on the web, or static in a PowerPoint slide. In this workshop I'll show you the required data format, how to import it into the tool, adjust visual properties, and export to an SVG file which can be edited in PowerPoint. This event is open to non-Duke participants.
