(Excel) .NetMap is an add-in for Office 2007 that provides social network
diagram and analysis tools in the context of a spreadsheet. Adding the
directed graph chart type to Excel opens up many possibilities for easily
manipulating networks and controlling their display properties.


In this tutorial the steps needed to install and operate (Excel) .NetMap
are reviewed. The (Excel) .NetMap add-in provides directed graph charting
features within Excel, allowing users to create node-link diagrams with
control over each node and edge color, size, transparency and shape. Since
.NetMap builds within Excel, all of the controls and programmatic features
of Office are available. Additional features of (Excel) .NetMap generate
social networks from data sources like personal e-mail (drawing data from
the Windows Desktop Search engine). Arbitrary edge lists (anything that can
be pasted into Excel) can be visualized and analyzed in .NetMap.



Marc Smith is a senior research sociologist at Microsoft Research
specializing in the social organization of online communities and computer
mediated interaction. He founded the Community Technologies Group and is
now part of the Internet Services Research Center at Microsoft Research in
Silicon Valley.  He is the co-editor of Communities in Cyberspace
(Routledge), a collection of essays exploring the ways identity;
interaction and social order develop in online groups.


Smith's research focuses on computer-mediated collective action: the ways
group dynamics change when they take place in and through social
cyberspaces. Many "groups" in cyberspace produce public goods and organize
themselves in the form of a commons (see related papers). Smith's goal is
to visualize these social cyberspaces, mapping and measuring their
structure, dynamics and life cycles. He has developed the "Netscan" engine
that allows researchers studying Usenet newsgroups to get reports on the
rates of posting, posters, crossposting, thread length and frequency
distributions of activity. These data have revealed a complex online social
ecosystem populated by multiple social roles.


This session will provide a walk through the basic operation of .NetMap.
Attendees are encouraged to bring an edge list of interest. Sample data
sets will be provided. Techniques for time slicing and filtering networks
will be highlighted. You may download the Excel .NetMap Add-in and slides
visit in advance of this tutorial.
