Mapping with Anthracite and OmniGraffle

Several people have asked me how I constructed the visualizations that I used in my talk on My own approach involved a fair amount of hand-rolled custom code – not fun for people unaccustomed to writing their own software and working from the command line. So as to give non-programming-savvy researchers a chance to explore – or other online systems with implicit network structures – for themselves, I have put together a short guide on using two Mac OS X applications, Anthracite and OmniGraffle, for this purpose.

Comments and suggestions are welcome.
