Zoomgraph and the Graph Analysis Language (GAL)
Eytan Adar and Joshua R. Tyler

As graph models are applied to more widely varying fields, researchers struggle with tools for exploring and analyzing these structures. We present the Zoomgraph visualization system which consists of a zoomable front-end for displaying graphs and a flexible back-end that allows for nodes and edges with an unlimited number of user-controlled properties. This paper also describes Zoomgraph's embedded, interpreted Graph Analysis Language (GAL) which supports the programmatic exploration of graph structures from simple snapshots to complex dynamics. We highlight key aspects of the system in the context of specific, real-world, applications ranging from social and knowledge networks to distributed computer network analysis.
