ThematicMap visualizes the relationships between node attributes. It can help simplify complex networks and highlight hidden relationships between different types of nodes (defined by their attribute values).
An attribute from the original network is selected. ThematicMap then generates a new network where each node represents an attribute value from the original network and attributes are connected if nodes with those attribute values in the original network were connected. The weight of the edges represents how many connections there are between nodes with the same attribute values in the original network. Statistics can be computed to estimate how surprising is the strength of the attribute given the structure and number of nodes and attributes of the original network.
