Like:
a  b  10
b  a   5

a  c   2
c  a   3

Or, are you looking for software that represents this graphically in a particular way?

***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Hi all

One can think of a social network where a given relationship link has one value for one particpant (e.g. high priority) but another for the other participant (e.g. low priority), rather than a single value

But all the SNA software that I have seen assumes a single value will apply to a given relationship, regardless of the actor perspective

Is there any software, or solution with existing software, where you can represent dual perspectives on the same relationship? For example, I can envisage an link line wide at one end but narrow at the other, representing differences in the perceived importance of the link
