The largest speed increases from the database functionality can be found in the extraction of networks. First, compare the results of a co-authorship extraction with those from section 5.1.4 Studying Four Major NetSci Researchers (ISI Data)# Author Co-Occurrence (Co-Author) Network. Run 'Data Preparation > Database > ISI > Extract Co-Author Network' followed by 'Analysis > Networks > Network Analysis Toolkit (NAT)'. Notice that both networks have 247 nodes and 891 edges. Visualize the extracted co-author network in GUESS using 'Visualization > Networks > GUESS' and reformat the visualization using 'Layout > GEM' and 'Layout > Bin Pack.' To apply the default co-authorship theme, go to 'Script > Run Script' and find 'yoursci2directory/scripts/GUESS/'. The resulting network will look like Figure 5.21.
