Arcade is expanding the boundaries of graph visualization! Data is becoming known as the new oil. You can have access to all of the data in the world, but if you do not have the proper tools to analyze and learn the significance of your data then it is worthless. At Arcade Analytics, we focus on creating cutting edge visualization tools that can help our users leverage their data. To help the world see the benefits of graph visualization tools, our team has added the Paradise Papers dataset on Neo4j to our demo for anyone to play with! Arcade uses our Cypher connector to allow users to connect directly to their Neo4j database. You can access this dataset in Arcade’s demo dashboard under the new widget called “Paradise”. To learn more about the Paradise Papers, click here to read Neo4j’s blog post.

To help you see the all of the advantages Arcade can offer, check out the different ways to visualize the Paradise Papers:

The “Paradise” widget in the Arcade demo uses this default query, recommended by Neo4j, as the starting point:

MATCH p=(o:Officer {name: “The Duchy of Lancaster”})-[*..2]-()

The default widget also has some node customization to give you a solid starting point.
