WebOCD: A RESTful Web-based Overlapping Community Detection Framework
We introduce WebOCD, a Web-based framework for developing, evaluating and analysing (overlapping) community detection (OCD) algorithms. WebOCD is not only open source and extensible but also comprises several baseline algorithms. Thus, it provides a test bed for comparison of innovative algorithms. Moreover, all the functionalities are accessible as RESTful Web services and are consequently easily integratable into other software packages. An additional Web client provides a simple interface for end users. Besides the OCD algorithms, the framework allows the generation of benchmark graphs, metric calculation and community visualization.
