I had a look at GraphViz and some other tools. There seem to be some common file formats that allow data to be passed between them. e.g. The first one contains a list of other format. GraphViz seems to be widely used, it is also used by other software. See

perhaps call it ft_networkwrite, in line with ft_networkanalysis. There might be some need for shared code between the two, e.g. in data handling and thresholding.

I had a look at fieldtrip, we now have mbp> ls *write* ft_sourcewrite.m ft_volumewrite.m

Hi George, Since you used Gephi in your presentation, I suspect that you have already looked at tthe file formats for interoperability. Could you please provide an initial version of an "ft_networkwrite" function? Robert

Not sure whether Georgios' esi e-mail address is still active. @G: do you intend to follow up on this? If not, I suggest to close for the time being.
