Hi Lydia, all,
Many thanks for the feedback on the system!
For those wanting just to play with the system you can try it here:
The survey itself is here:
(Just in case someone wishes to answer the survey, it might be best to
do so before reading on further.)

The tool is linked on the second page of the survey Aidan linked.
@Aiden and Cristóbal: Great tool. Thanks for putting it together! One
thing I noticed that can maybe be improved is that it seems to focus
on relations between two nodes first before moving on to other nodes.
I tried China, Brazil and Germany and the timer ended when it had only
added connections between two of them (diplomatic relations, there are
_a lot_ of them...).
Thanks, yes, that's a useful test-case! I think with the way the
algorithm proceeds it might not be trivial to address this, but we
understand the issue. Regarding there being a lot of diplomatic
relations, that's a second issue that we've discussed; we do think it
would be useful to somehow give the users the power to filter some of
the connections that are formed by relation type, for example. This
might come in a later iteration if there is sufficient interest in
further developing the tool. It would not be difficult in a technical
sense, but it's a question of how to do it in a usable way. :)
I created an issue here for the former improvement:
