The Network Analysis Profiler (NAP v2.0): a web tool for visual topological comparison between multiple networks

Mikaela Koutrouli, Theodosios Theodosiou, Ioannis Iliopoulos, Georgios A. Pavlopoulos


In this article we present the Network Analysis Profiler (NAP v2.0), a web tool to directly compare the topological features of multiple networks simultaneously. NAP is written in R and Shiny and currently offers both 2D and 3D network visualisation, as well as simultaneous visual comparisons of node- and edge-based topological features as bar charts or scatterplot matrix. NAP is fully interactive, and users can easily export and visualise the intersection between any pair of networks using Venn diagrams or a 2D and a 3D multi-layer graph-based visualisation. NAP supports weighted, unweighted, directed, undirected and bipartite graphs.
