Layered Graph Force-driven Vertex Positioning

Radek Mařík

Abstract

We propose a new method of node positioning for huge layered graphs specified by layers and fixed ordering of nodes within layers. We assume that the assignments of nodes to the layers and the order of nodes within the layers are provided by other suitable methods capable of processing multitree like networks. The node positioning method is based on the force-driven approach with barrier-like repulsive forces that avoids the quadratic complexity of traditional methods. We demonstrate achievements on several datasets containing up to millions of people or species. The proposed layout method of layered graphs that are close to acyclic multitrees creates aesthetically acceptable layouts in linear time.
