Tango Friend Map
« on: August 18, 2017, 01:44:07 am »
So recently I mapped out the friends everyone that has steam integrated on the forums. There is a 4000px version of the map and an SVG version right now. You cannot really see names on the 4000px version but it gives a good overview for what the entire map looks like. The SVG version you can zoom in and out as far as you want but you need a fairly beefy browser and a decent amount of ram and processing power to view it.

How data was gathered:
Data was gathered via the Steam API using only forum accounts with their Steam account linked. Steam does not return your friends in the API if your profile is private. However, if someone is friends with you and their profile is public, it will list you as a friend.

Who is included in the map:
Everyone that has their Steam account linked on the forums.

How is it set up:
Each node on the map is someone's forum account.
Each edge on the map is a friend relation on their linked Steam account.

How long did it take to generate:
About 1 hour to code the fetching and relation building script.
About 2 hours to run the fetching and relation building script.
About 25 minutes to export to SVG.
About 1 hour to export the SVG to a 4000px PNG.

W*H of SVG: 206272.031px by 206402.656px.
File size: >100GB (if exported as PNG), ~7MB as SVG.
Total nodes: 2811
Total edges: 22535

Software used:
PHP, Steam API, GraphViz and InkScape.

Spoiler: 4000px version (click to show/hide)
Spoiler: SVG version (click to show/hide)

Bonus if you can find someone on the map that has no relations.

EDIT: Added a few more over view images and some more stats.
