Social Network Image Animator. SoNIA is a Java-based package for visualizing dynamic or longitudinal ”network” data. By dynamic, we mean that in addition to information about the relations (ties) between various entities (actors, nodes) there is also information about when these relations occur, or at least the relative order in which they occur. Our intention for SoNIA is to read-in dynamic network information from various formats, aid the user in constructing ”meaningful” layouts, and export the resulting images or ”movies” of the network, along with information about the techniques and parameter settings used to construct the layouts, and some form of statistic indicating the ”accuracy” or degree of distortion present in the layout. This is all somewhat ambitious, but not impossible.
