Meta Data Provider: layouter.GraphvizMetaDataProvider


Spring model layouts similar to those of Neato, but does this by reducing forces rather than working with energy. Fdp implements the Fruchterman-Reingold heuristic including a multigrid solver that handles larger graphs and clustered undirected graphs.

Category: Force

Layout algorithms that follow physical analogies by simulating a system of attractive and repulsive forces. The first successful method of this kind was proposed by Eades in 1984.
