Love the buzzword or hate it, ‘big data’ is an inescapable reality. Whether it’s for business intelligence or bioinformatics, recommendation engines or risk analysis, the volume, variety and velocity of data is only going to increase.

Unfortunately, one of graph’s greatest strengths – intuitive visualization – is restricted by an essentially fixed resource: screen size. Even a large monitor only accommodates a few hundred nodes before the graph’s structure becomes difficult to parse.
