When clicking on a node in the following chart, a tooltip appears showing the node info. Is there any way to read this info so that it can be used elsewhere on the page, eg to lookup detail.

Data you're referencing seems to be a specific condensed format used by Google to display the node graph.

My best guess is to get into the Google documentation for this system + see if there's data about how to decode this for your desired use.

Likely docs will explain this or Google provides an API for accessing/manipulating this data.

https://support.google.com/fusiontables/answer/2571232 seems to be a good starting point for using this Google system.


hi David, thanks for your suggestion, I'll take a look at that.
