- GML file. Coauthorships in network science: coauthorship network of scientists working on network theory and experiment, as compiled by M. Newman in May 2006. A figure depicting the largest component of this network can be found here. M. E. J. Newman, Phys. Rev. E 74, 036104 (2006).
- GEXF file. CPAN authors: CPAN Explorer is a visualization project aiming at analyzing the relationships between the developers and the packages of the Perl language, known as the CPAN community. This snapshot was created by Linkfluence in July 2009. This file contains the network of developers, linked when they use the same Perl module. Original data can be found here.
