The following animations show the state of each network through time. An edge between two nodes indicates the presence of a connection during a particular snapshot. Edge colour indicates propagation speed (darker blue indicates higher speed, relative to other edges in the same dataset). The time interval of the current snapshot is reported in the top-right corner. Note that the structure and speeds of the C. Elegans network are not time-varying.
Datasets are provided in the LMF Aggregate Format, a non-proprietary format for multiplex networks.

Each dataset's "network" file (*_stnet.csv.gz) describes the time-evolution of the network's topology in LMF Aggregate Format. This is a CSV file where each row describes a weighted directed edge in a particular timestep. Each row consists of the following fields:
Absence of a row for two nodes in a particular timestep indicates that there is no edge between them during the corresponding time interval.
In addition, geographic locations of nodes are provided in each dataset's "coordinates" CSV file (*_coords.csv.gz). Columns consist of node, long, and lat. Longitude and latitude are given on the WGS-84 ellipsoid. Node locations in these two datasets are not time-varying and therefore their coordinates are not associated with a particular timestamp.
