***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** I've looked at Yworks and TomSawyer in the past, and they look really impressive. However, they are oriented toward the commercial market regarding pricing, which has put them out of reach for myself to implement. In fact, the licensing is much higher than one could reasonably expect the SNA market (academic or otherwise) to support. Is anyone aware of any social network analysis-compatible apps out there (e.g., that could import network data) that implement Yworks or TomSawyer libraries?
