Hello list,
The new command netplot is now available from ssc. It produces a
graphical representation of social network data stored  as an  edgelist
or arclist in var1 and var2.
A short introduction:
Visualization of networks is a popular part of network analysis.
Specialized software packages like Pajek offer great tools for network
visualization,  but if you are working with Stata, having to export your
data to Pajek for every simple picture is a pain. Netplot is a first
step towards making network visualization available within Stata.
Assuming that you have data stored as edges or arcs,  the program lets
you draw plots of your network, using multi-dimensional scaling to
determine the placement of the nodes. Alternatively, you can have your
nodes arranged on a circle. The use of labels to identify nodes in the
graph is also supported.

More info: ssc desc netplot
To install: ssc install netplot
To see only the help file: ssc type netplot.sthlp
Also see
in-stata-with-netplot/ for some examples.
Thanks to Kit Baum for making the files available!
Best, Rense
