Gephi adopts a licencing model which makes it free to use, sell, or include the source code of Gephi in larger applications.
Developers who modify the Gephi code base are required to make these changes public, to benefit the community.
for networks of all types (social, semantic, biological, etc.)
attributes and properties of the network are made visible: not just the topology of the network.
Gephi provides functions to explore the network: pan, filter, zoom, colorize, label, etc.
measures and metrics can be computed, and then rendered visually.
Gephi won a Duke Award in 2010. Duke awards "recognize and honor extreme innovation in the world of Java technology".
Gephi evolved importantly since 2006 to adopt new, best performing techs for the visualization of very large graphs on the desktop
The code base of Gephi is maintained with the best standards to insure a a stable application, ease of maintainance and modularity / extensibility.
Gephi is "cut" in a large number of modules, each providing a specific function. This makes it easier to maintain and evolve the software, by working on independent parts.
Since version 0.9 the "graph store" of Gephi has become a completely independent module: it can be reused by another software.
Anybody can create new modules for Gephi! They are called "plugins". They integrate with Gephi seamlessly.
