Started with lengthy and laborious processes in producing Linkographs manually (using Autocad and Photoshop), I decided to seek help to have a script to automated the process. Now we have a running script for the purpose of exploration. Benefits of the script: 1) quick try and fix 2) aid the process of second rating by a second rater 3) flexible output: either we want to show the data in macro level and micro level. The output’s perimeter can be adjusted according to your needs. For instance, selecting the appropriate size of vertices and limited colour of edges. I found differentiation is useful for different analysis purposes. And on a personal note, 4) it is very helpful to explore my data while constructing a new coding scheme for my specific study.
