Pajek – Program for Large Network Analysis

From the webpage:

Pajek (Slovene word for Spider) is a program, for Windows, for analysis and visualization of large networks. It is freely available, for noncommercial use, at its download page. See also a reference manual for Pajek (in PDF). The development of Pajek is traced in its History.

I was looking for input formats for GraphInsight and the “Pajek” format was one of the formats mentioned.

The reference manual runs almost one hundred (100) pages and the software has a large number of interesting looking features.

Question: Do you think Pajek (or any other graph program) can usefully visualize inconsistent data? That is two sets of inconsistently labeled graph data.

(Seeing Kristina’s Hacking Chess with the MongoDB Pipeline and the Pajek format made me realize something everyone else has probably known forever. More on that tomorrow.)
