Working with lenses in the Graph Browser

Lenses tab

Side bar lenses tab

The lenses tab enables you to make alterations on the displayed nodes/links:

  • Process: Allows you to replace a node with a relation between two of its children.

  • Color: Allows you to select a field which is then used to color the nodes by using a coloring schema.

  • Conditional: Allows you to change a node property value by using configurable expressions.

  • Advanced: Allows you to apply metrics to the graph, including:

    • Betweenness

    • Closeness

    • Connectiveness

    • Degrees

    • Eigenvector

    • Pagerank

  • Label: Allows you to set the node label by using an expression.

  • Size: Use a log scale to adjust the node’s size according to an expression.

  • Spatio-Temporal: Allows you to set the node time and/or geographic location from field values.

Lens parameters

Lens parameters

Each lens has specific parameters which will be used for every graph node.

Conditional lens

Conditional lens

A conditional lens can change a property for all the nodes that satisfy the condition:

  • Color

  • Node font icon

  • Node glyphs

  • Hidden

  • Label

  • Location

  • Node image

    Node icons that link to web images are not always shown properly due to security restrictions. You may need to configure the Image Proxy feature to display them.
  • Size

  • Time

  • Tooltip

Associate records based on ontology lens

Side bar - associate records based on ontology lens

The associate records based on ontology lens can use the node’s underlying model, as in the following example, to replace a node with the relation between two of its children.

After you configure the lens, two nodes and its relationship will be displayed. For example, apply this lens an investment node:

You could obtain the associate records based on ontology as a result:
