A new graph layout for seeing structure in your data
28 April 2012
Our new layout groups nodes which are structurally identical - i.e., have the same connections.
The layout spaces nodes so the structure is easier to see, and uses the fact that your vision is good at spotting & matching shapes:
- Nodes which are in the same group are laid out in a circle and placed close together.
- Groups of two are laid out on top of each other.
- Groups of three in a tight triangle, four in a diamond shape, etc.
This layout has been really effective on some of our data sets, so we're excited to see how our KeyLines users find it!
