Metalyzer - Analysis of MAP graphs

alternate text

A new project called Metalyzer started at Hochschule Hannover. As part of their bachelor studies, 9 students work within this project for two terms.

Goals of the project

The project will extend the VisITMeta dataservice to perform statistical methods and semantic(-like) queries on MAP graphs and visualize the results within the VisITMeta GUI. With the use of VisITMeta’s history of MAP data, time-variant analysis can be done.

Some of the statistical analysis that are planed within the project are:

  • General graph-based analysis: how many nodes, how many edges, mean of edges per node, …

  • IF-MAP based analysis: how many identifiers of a special type, …

  • Analysis with respect to the history feature of VisITMeta: histogram of identifier-types at specific timestamp, development of number of a specific identifier over time, …

Furthermore, the project will also design and implement (simple) semantic queries, that can be performed on MAP graphs, like …

  • .. at which times was a specific user “present” in the network? What were his IP and MAC adresses?

  • … when did a specific device occur in the network for the first/last time?
