I'm looking to create a map like the one below for shipment volume between cities (which I have geocoded). I found the image below created in Gephi, however I'm wondering what other tools exist that can do similar visualizations. I see it's possible in R though a code example isn't posted.

Not so long ago I was using Gephi to do similar visualizations for graphs. The program is easy to use and it will not take more then a day to learn majority of the features. I would say that by the scale powerfullness / ease of use it will be the first one.

You can also do this with a lot of JS libraries (few examples):

Few examples with D3. But it is much harder to produce such graphs there.


Just for illustration purposes, I will add here a few images created with Gephi:

    $\begingroup$ Nice! Though the questions specifically asks for option other than Gephi (the first link was actually from Gephi), so I am not sure if OP will find this answer useful. $\endgroup$ – Penguin_Knight Nov 27 '14 at 3:41
  • $\begingroup$ @Penguin_Knight oh, I have not looked at the link. I just read the question and noticed R. Sorry for this. If someone will be too much frustrated with this answer - please write me to remove it. One more time, sorry. $\endgroup$ – Salvador Dali Nov 27 '14 at 3:44

    $\begingroup$ Do not worry, I just commented so that you realize that. It seems like a neat program and deserves to be shown as an answer. $\endgroup$ – Penguin_Knight Nov 27 '14 at 3:46

    $\begingroup$ @Penguin_Knight thank you. Good things about it is easy learning curve, a lot of functionality out of the box, easy to modify with custom plugins. $\endgroup$ – Salvador Dali Nov 27 '14 at 3:47

    $\begingroup$ @ElPresidente this is not the only one, but I would say the easiest one to use and yet super powerful. I will add some JS libraries as well in a few minutes. $\endgroup$ – Salvador Dali Nov 27 '14 at 3:59
