There's a limit to what I can say because the data is proprietary and the paper the jpeg is from hasn't been published (or, for that matter, written).

The picture is from a program called NetDraw, which takes social network data from a program called UCInet. The data is about deals and alliances in a particular segment of a large industry. The nodes are organizations and the arrows are deals.
