Picture this — Websites as Graphs
In case you are wondering what the strange spidery image on the left is, it’s Propellerhead, or at least that’s how it looks to Websites as Graphs.
Simply type in the URL of a website and it converts it into a graphical representation, displaying all of the various elements as interlinked colour coded dots. Blue dots represent links, Red is for tables, violet is for images, yellow for forms, black for the Root node and so on.
The graph doesn’t appear instantly, it slowly and gracefully unfolds — depending how large or complex the site is — and if you like what you see you can take a screenshot and post it on the online picture site flickr. If you like this tip then there are hundred more for you to try at PCTopTips

There is a more useful version along the ideas in this that has been around for about 4 years now, TouchGraph allows you to click on the nodes and get more information and even spawn new shoots of your graph, great fun.
