Method used to generate Force Atlas layout


I was wondering if you could tell me what function, package or method is used by NetworkAnalyst to create the “Force Atlas” layout? I’m trying to create networks in R using igraph/ggraph/tidygraph, but find the provided layouts don’t work as well with very large networks ( >1000 nodes). I found the ForceAtlas2 R package on Github, but can’t seem to create something similar-looking to what NetworkAnalyst outputs.

Thanks for the help,

Hello Travis,

The method used is from a sigma.js plugin.
Please take a look at this page:

Here is the script file we are using for NetworkAnalyst:


Great! Thanks for the quick response.
