The KONECT Project

This is the KONECT project, a project in the area of network science with the goal to collect network datasets, analyse them, and make available all analyses online. KONECT stands for Koblenz Network Collection, as the project has roots at the University of Koblenz–Landau in Germany. All source code is made available as Free Software, and includes a network analysis toolbox for GNU Octave, a network extraction library, as well as code to generate these web pages, including all statistics and plots. KONECT is run by the research group around Jérôme Kunegis at the University of Namur, in the Namur Center for Complex Networks.

The KONECT project has 1,300 network datasets in 23 categories. We have computed 35,990 graph statistics and generated 58,942 plots.
