    network of political parties and corporate donors has been published in Die Zeit by Dr. Frank D. Behrend of Eliqos.

    Up in the Air

    Custom look for Up in the Air movie:

    The interactive marketing team at Paramount wanted to promote Up in the Air on Facebook. The tagline for the movie is "The story of a man ready to make a connection". Paramount felt network visualization was a good way to engage fans with this metaphore. Paramount requested that TouchGraph customize the TouchGraph Facebook application to match the look of the movie website.

    The adjacent image shows the customized look and feel from TouchGraph's proposal.

    The Invisible Edge by Mark Blaxill and Ralph Eckardt talks about Intellectual Property as a priority for business strategy. The authors describe how they used tools developed by TouchGraph to zoom through IP Networks.

    "The picture below compares the innovation keiretsus of Toyota and Ford. The networks show the joint ownership of patents held by each company. One look and it is easy to see what was once invisible. Toyota has developed a rich network of collaborative innovation by sharing the ownership of the property rights that result. Ford? Not so much. That difference has led to dramatic differences in the performance of the two companies."

    TouchGraph Arlen Specter

    Senator Arlen Specter's switch makes sense when visualized with TouchGraph Navigator.

    TouchGraph's visualization of senator co-sponsorship patterns in the 110th congress shows that he has acting like a democrat for years.

    Senator Specter has co-sponsored more bills with senators Shumer, Casey, Lehey and 7 other Democratic senators than he has with senator Coleman, his closest Republican co-sponsor.

    TouchGraph Navigator's senate visualization builds on James Fowler's earlier work at UC Davis.
