Force-directed layouts are most common and incorporate heuristic strategies and aesthetic criteria to emphasize symmetry and improve the relative layout of neighboring nodes. Unfortunately, they are not helpful when networks need to be compared – even minor differences in small networks cannot be dependably detected. To address this deficiency, we introduce differential hive plots. Hive plots (www.hiveplot.com) are a network visualization strategy that place nodes and edges using an absolute coordinate…
