Views Graph layout features
Automatically organize diagram displays
Deliver the most understandable views of data and relationships with this collection of sophisticated algorithms. With Views Graph, compute positions of the elements — the “nodes” and “links” — of a diagram (or graph) tailored to your data sets and user needs.
Examples of different graph layout algorithms
A variety of node layout algorithms
Find and apply the right node layout algorithm for your particular topology and application domain.
- Tree, for organization charts, call graphs, decision trees, and more
- Radial tree, for website maps and relationship graphs
- Bus, for network displays
- Hierarchical, for workflow, UML diagrams, industrial process diagrams and other ranked data sets
Link layout supported
Build a cleaner, more readable display for users with fewer link crossings. Using our proprietary link routing algorithms minimizes the number of link crossings. Choose from different algorithm settings and link styles, including orthogonal links, polyline links, and direct connection links.
Fine tuning parameters
Don't settle for algorithm “default settings.” Easily specify the layout direction, spacing between nodes and links, and how links should connect to nodes with a variety of control parameters. Each algorithm type has its own unique set of tuning parameters.
Meet the requirements of your end users by delivering the exact layout, look, and interaction capability. Views Graph Layout has a complete application programming interface (API), to customize any part of the diagram display, including:
- Connection to the data
- New layout algorithms
- New types of nodes and links
- New custom interactions
Just like Views, Views Graph runs on Windows, UNIX and Linux. Code developed in one environment can deploy effortlessly to other Windows, Unix, and Linux platforms, removing the need to purchase a chart development product for each platform.
