What I am finding in my current work is that there are a set of symmetrical, semi-symmetrical and asymmetrical polyhedrons that can be used to describe an individual’s network with the the individual as the focus and direct links as radii to individuals represented as polytopes and the reporting groups (circles) represented as polygons formed from connecting the vertexes for the individuals in the reporting groups with edges.
Suddenly, “spheres of influence” can be modeled and utilized to the benefit of the communities of the individuals.
Prezi www.prezi.com could be used to navigate the vertexes on the surfaces of these spheres of influence as a giant two dimensional map of linked pages that you could “dive” into or “surface” out of through the links instead of forwarding or backwarding.
All you would have to do is have a “map” button that you click on and all the child pages for the current page are displayed as a Prezi map. As a line or table of pages, as a sphere with the pages displayed on the surface or flat one degree daisywheel with the tops of the pages pointing to the center where an icon for the current page resides. Rotate the daisy to look at the pages right side up. Or navigate freely Prezi style.
This could be applied to webpage networks, citation networks, social networks, location networks, date networks, time networks or state networks, career networks, image networks or any other form of network you can dream up.
If you have a company capable of developing this, I am looking for work and this would be a great project to get paid for.
