I lied—my 8K node network did display, it
just took the browser several minutes to open it!
Like Chris, we’re struggling with large
numbers of links and moving to cross-deliverable links.
I tried running it on one of our root maps,
which ultimately involves about 8000 topics (even though the
input map only refers to about 115 topics!).
Unfortunately, it said that the improved
layout couldn’t position the network with the improved layout
engine and it’s a holiday weekend so I’ll come back to it ☺
But like Chris I was about to try to make
something like this myself, so you’ve saved me much time (yet
With pleasure, indeed creating the small JSON data part of
the file is quite easy, VisJs has lots of settings which can
be switched as well but I have not played much with them.

This visualization is pretty cool! I appreciate the example
graph so we could easily see what is produced without
running all the steps.
Our books have cross-deliverable links using peer maps (<mapref scope="peer">)
with keyscopes. I have considered writing a script to
extract a similar graph for book-to-book references, so we
can see how our books - and thus our products - tend to
reference each other. Your example gives me a great example
of how the visualization part could work. I was originally
going to create a static drawing using GraphViz, but I like
this interactive VisJS approach better.
Thank you for sharing this!
