Vertices (nodes) Edges (links) Adjacency list : 2 2: 1, 3 3: Adjacency matrix Drawing 2 1 Graph Terminology Graphs can have cycles Graph edges can be directed or undirected The degree of a vertex is the number of edges connected to it In-degree and out-degree for directed graphs Graph edges can have values (weights) on them (nominal, ordinal or quantitative) 3 Trees are Different Subcase of general graph No cycles Typically directed edges Special designated root vertex Spring 2002 CS Issues in Graph visualization Graph drawing Layout and positioning Scale: large scale graphs are difficult Navigation: changing focus and scale 5 Vertex Issues Shape Color Size Location Label 6 3 Edge Issues Color Size Label Form Polyline, straight line, orthogonal, grid, curved, planar, upward/downward,... 7 Aesthetic Considerations Crossings -- minimize number of edge crossings Total Edge Length -- minimize total length Area -- minimize towards efficiency Maximum Edge Length -- minimize longest edge Uniform Edge Lengths -- minimize variances Total Bends -- minimize orthogonal towards straight-line 8 4 Graph drawing optimization 3D-Graph Drawing 5 Graph visualization techniques Node-link approach Layered graph drawing (Sugiyama) Force-directed layout Multi-dimensional scaling (MDS) Adjacency Matrix Attribute based approach 11 Sugiyama (layered) method Suitable for directed graphs with natural hierarchies: All edges are oriented in a consistent direction and no pairs of edges cross 6 Sugiyama : Building Hierarchy Assign layers according to the longest path of each vertex Dummy vertices are used to avoid path across multiple layers. Vertex permutation within a layer to reduce edge crossing. Exact optimization is NP-hard need heuristics.

Weighted distances (,, w,,, MDS for graph layout 10 Other Node-Link Methods Orthogonal layout Suitable for UML graph Radial graph Often used in social networks Nested graph layout Apply graph layout hierarchically Suitable for graphs with hierarchy Arc Diagrams Arc Diagram Les Misérables character relations 11 Arc Diagram EU Financial Crisis: 12 Summary: Node-Link Pros Intuitive Good for global structure Flexible, with variations Cons Complexity O(N 2 ) Not suitable for large graphs Adjacency Matrix matrix, for a graph with N nodes. (i, j) position represent the relationship of the ith node and jth node. 13 Adjacency Matrix Edge weight Directional edges Sorting: node order Path searching and path tracking? 28 14 Node Order Path Tracking 15 Adjacency matrix summary Avoid edge crossing, suitable for dense graphs Visually more scalable Visualization is not intuitive Hard to track a path MatLink 16 Hybrid Layout Using adjacency matrix to represent small communities Node-link for relationships between communities NodeTrix 17 GMap Visualizing graphs and clusters as geographic maps to represent node relations (geographic neighbors) Topological graph simplification Reducing amount of data Reducing nodes: clustering Reducing edges: minimal spanning tree Edge bundling Problems: Loss of data 18 Clustering Edge Bundling 19 Force Directed Edge Bundling Edges are modeled as flexible springs that are able to attract each other. Geometry Based Edge Bundling Edges clusters are found based on a geometric control mesh. 20 Multilevel Agglomerative Edge Bundling Bottom-up merging approach, similar to hierarchical clustering Minimize amount of ink used to render a graph. Skeleton-based Edge Bundling Skeletons: medial axes of edges which are similar in terms of positions information. Iteratively attracting edges towards the skeletons. 21 Comparison Interaction Viewing Pan, Zoom, Rotate Interacting with graph nodes and edges Pick, highlight, delete, move Structural interaction Local re-order and re-layout Focus+Context Roll-up & Drill-down 22 Fisheye Focus+Context; Overviews + details-on-demand Distortion to magnify areas of interest: zoom factors of 3-5 Multi-scale spaces: Zoom in/out & Pan left/right Interaction with Social Networks Need to consider the social factors and behaviors related to nodes and edges 23 Graph Visualization Tools Prefuse (Java) UCINET / NetDraw Sentinel Visualizer JUNG (Java Universal Network/Graph framework) Graphviz Gephi TouchGraph Flare: ActionScript Library 24 Pajek 25 Sentinel Visualizer Link Analysis, Data Visualization, Geospatial Mapping, and Social Network Analysis (SNA) UCINET / NetDraw Analysis and visualization of networks and graphs Example: trade 52 26 Example: traffic 53 Example: Subway map 54 27 Web page connections 55 Communication Networks 28 Hypergraphs Definition A hypergraph is a generalization of a graph, where an edge can connect any number of vertices. A hypergraph H is a pair H = (V,E)whereV is a set of nodes/vertices, and E is a set of non-empty subsets of V called hyperedges/links. 29 The Hypergraph H = (V,E) where V = (1,2,3,4,5) and E = {(1,2) (2,3,5) (1,3), (5,4) (2,3)} Applications Data Mining Biological Interactions Social Networks Circuit Diagrams 30 Graph Representations Edge Nodes: Representative Graph 31
