    Library of community detection algorithms and visualization tools

    A few people are asking what this is a visualization of. OP's graphs look very similar to an example of the Louvain Method shown in the library's documentation. The Louvain Method is a community detection algorithm used on network graphs. It works by iteratively optimizing modularity of the graph. Modularity is a measure of the density of the number of edges (lines between nodes) that fall within a given group/cluster compared to what would be expected from a random distribution of edges throughout the graph.
