New network movie algorithm

Shortly after hearing my "Complaining about Network Visualization" talk at the University of Maryland, host Ben Shneiderman tipped me off to this award-winning paper presented at EuroVis 2007, where he had just given the keynote address. Ben's tip directly addresses my complaint that most SNA tools consider visualization as an isolated problem to be done once. The problem is that we like to look at networks change over time and watch series of network maps. Generating series of network maps that communicate meaningful information is no easy task. The movie below by Yaniv Frishman and Ayellet Tal summarizes their significant step forward in automating this task. (15MG QuickTime)
Here's an overview of my numerous related posts on network visualization.
