Network Graph Visualizations

A project to provide public web service to search and browse network graphs of relationships in our public Popit database

Objective

Malaysian open data Popit database of people and organizations can also be visualized to show relationships when imported into a network graph database such as neo4j. A public user friendly user interface will allow the public to explore connections of people and organizations such as party membership and posts held in organizations. With date range and constraints it will also be a useful tool for the public as well as transparency organizations to quickly lookup whether there are possible conflict of interests.

Methodology

  • Import relationships of people and organizations from Popit database for Malaysia into neo4j database.
  • Write a user friendly web based interface using d3.js visualization libraries to allow users to easily search for people and organizations, to dynamically explore relationships.
