Very interesting project! I would definitely include igraph in the
Visualization category too, because igraph has very powerful
Another comment is that, looking at your list, it's not clear to me
where you are drawing the line, that is, what the inclusion criterion
for a package is. The list includes packages that are not specifically
for networks, although they are certainly used by network analysts (e.g.
data.table, gganimate). However, if the criterion is "any package that
is used by network analysts", then some packages are missing which I'm
sure several people in this community use (e.g. ggplot, dplyr), and in
fact your list might quickly become very long and less meaningful. You
might want to think about restricting the list to (1) packages that have
at least some functions specifically thought for network data, or (2)
packages that have dependencies or inverse dependencies to packages in
(1). Or maybe you could do two lists, one for strictly network packages,
one for "other packages that network analysts find useful" (a consensus
analysis on this would be very interesting).
