Lightning Talk: Graphs in time and space: A visual example

Graph databases are helping to solve some of today’s most pressing challenges. From managing critical infrastructure and understanding cyber threats to detecting fraud, we have worked with hundreds of developers building all kinds of mission-critical graph applications powered by Neo4j.

This presentation will explore two dimensions of graphs that, from our experience, cause the most confusion but potentially contain vital data insight: space and time. Dan will use visual examples to explain the quirks (and importance) of dynamic and geospatial graphs, and how they can be stored, explored and queried in Neo4j. He will then show how graph visualization tools empower users to explore connections between people, events, locations and times.


Dan works closely with our customers who are building advanced graph applications, helping them to make the best possible visualization tools. He has a Master’s in Physics from Oxford University and a wealth of experience with a variety of software products across many different industry verticals.
