Abstract

This paper describes a hybrid Genetic Algorithm (GA) that is used to improve the layout of a graph according to a number of aesthetic criteria. The GA incorporates spatial and topological information by operating directly with a graph based representation. Initial results show this to be a promising technique for positioning graph nodes on a surface and may form the basis of a more general approach for problems involving multi-criteria spatial optimisation.
