Mapping Our Friendships Over Time and Space: The Future of Social Network Analysis
JANUARY 18, 2011
That's the topic of discussion in a new paper by Shashi Shekhar and research assistant Dev Oliver, spatial data scientists at the University of Minnesota, titled Computational Modeling of Spatio-temporal Social Networks: A Time-Aggregated Graph Approach ( PDF ). Very intriguing (re: applying time/space to SNA). So much can be misinterpreted by a snapshot of relations that may be based on transitory ties within the enterprise (projects, campaigns, etc).
