Scientific studies of complex systems show that all networks - from epidemics to the electric power grid, from the cell to the Internet - share similar properties, regardless of their origins. That is, what is relevant to understand their global organization is not the specific details of "nodes and links" but how these elements are interconnected and assembled to form the complex network. Here, visualization is an key tool that provides deep insights into the structure and the evolutionary and creative processes generating complexity.
