Visualising the data lake using proximity graphs in Gephi

Gephi is a free graph analysis and visualisation tool developed over the Netbeans platform for Java. It supports computing statistics over graphs, applying algorithms to analyse and to visualise the graphs, and to apply filters and queries over the graphs, all using an intuitive graphical-user interface. It has become very popular today due to its strong capabilities and support by the user community. We will demonstrate in this article how to use it to visualise a proximity graph for the data lake.
