Nebula Explorer (Explorer in short) is a browser-based visualization tool. It is used with the NebulaGraph core to visualize interaction with graph data. Even if there is no experience in graph database, you can quickly become a graph exploration expert.


Explorer is only available in the enterprise version.


You can also try some functions online in Explorer.


You can use Explorer in one of these scenarios:

  • You need to quickly find neighbor relationships from complex relationships, analyze suspicious targets, and display graph data in a visual manner.

Explorer has these features:

  • Easy to use: Explorer can be deployed in simple steps. And
  • User-friendly: Explorer uses simple visual interaction, no need to conceive nGQL sentences, easy to realize graph exploration.
  • Flexible: Explorer supports querying data through VID, Tag, and Subgraph.
  • Exploration operations: Explorer supports exploration operations on multiple vertices, querying the common neighbors of multiple vertices, and querying the path between the source vertex and the destination vertex.
  • Various display: Explorer supports modifying the color and icon of the vertex in the canvas to highlight key nodes. Data can also be displayed in different modes.
  • Data storage: Data on a canvas can be stored and exported.
