About NodeXL
Excel® Window

NodeXL is a template for Microsoft® Excel® (2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016) on Windows (XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10) that lets you enter a network edge list into a workbook, click a button, see a network graph, and get a detailed summary report, all in the familiar environment of the Excel® spreadsheet application.

NodeXL has two versions: NodeXL Basic and NodeXL Pro.

NodeXL Basic is a browser for network files created with NodeXL Pro.

With the free and open NodeXL Basic , you can easily:

  • Customize the network graph's appearance
  • Zoom, scale and pan the graph
  • Calculate basic graph metrics
  • Dynamically filter vertices and edges
  • Alter the graph's layout
  • Find clusters of related vertices

The NodeXL Pro application can be licensed for a 12 month period, adding additional features:

  • Calculate advanced graph metrics
  • Import and export graphs to a variety of file formats
  • Get social networks using built-in connections to Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, YouTube, Wikis, Blogs, Instagram, Network Surveys, and email
  • Automate network graph collection and creation

If you use Excel® on Windows you can download and use NodeXL Basic now. Or license NodeXL Pro for additional features.

A collection of network maps and reports created with NodeXL can be seen in the NodeXL Graph Gallery, an archive of data sets uploaded by the NodeXL user community.
