I thought I would ask the community how you visualize large matrices of data (that are symmetric and are some sort of connectivity measure). I have an example I was toying with here, but I haven’t found a similar published image that looks like that.
Has anyone used bctpy (the python alternative to Brain Connectivity Toolbox? I like the circle graphs they provide.
EDIT: one image I may want to emulate is how this group made the matrix here with colorbars in the axes, but I’m not even sure what I would have to change in matplotlib to get that behavior.
Thank you, these are great examples!
I should probably also mention similar visualizations that we wrote in nitime, including graph visualizations:
The layout here is not a circle, but I think you could set it as a circle using networkx (which is doing the layout under the hood): https://networkx.github.io/documentation/networkx-1.10/reference/generated/networkx.drawing.layout.circular_layout.html
