There are 6 different Map Types available in LinkSViewer. Each map type has its own tab in the LinkSViewer interface, and clicking on any of the tabs will prompt LinkSViewer to redisplay the current network using that map type.
Map Selection Tabs
This is how the tabs will look for the first view of any network. The Relational Map is the default display. To see any of the other map types, just click on the desired tab, and the network will be re-mapped for you.
Each of the tabs leads to a display that represents the exact same network through different definitions of the links between the nodes, or different filters of which links and nodes are displayed and which are hidden. Technically, the tabs do not display different networks, rather different projections of the same network. These different projections can help you like preset stations on a radio. You can quickly see different preset views that are particularly helpful.
