An open-source collection of overlapping community detection algorithms, quality measures, and data sets with a web interface.


WebOCD provides functionality to upload graphs and covers in various formats and to run overlapping community detection measures and centrality measures on the uploaded graph, as well as certain metrics on the generated or uploaded covers. Graphs and covers can also be displayed visually via SVG or interactive force-graph visualization.

WebOCD consists of an OCD Service and a Web Client which can both be found on GitHub:




WebOCD has also been used for Overlapping Community Detection in the online book "Algorithmen für die Entdeckung von Communities in sozialen Netzwerken":
