EvoCells - A Treemap Layout Algorithm for Evolving Tree Data

Willy Scheibel, Christopher Weyand, Jürgen Döllner

Abstract

We propose the rectangular treemap layout algorithm EvoCells that maps changes in tree-structured data onto an initial treemap layout. Changes in topology and node weights are mapped to insertion, removal, growth, and shrinkage of the layout rectangles. Thereby, rectangles displace their neighbors and stretche their enclosing rectangles with a run-time complexity of O (n log n). An evaluation using layout stability metrics on the open source ElasticSearch software system suggests EvoCells as a valid alternative for stable treemap layouting.
