Abstract

Euler diagrams are the only diagrams that intuitively represent containment, intersection and exclusion of data, but none of the current automatic diagram layout techniques produce good layouts in a reasonable time. We adopt a force-directed approach to automatically layout aesthetically pleasing Euler diagrams in a relatively fast time. A Java prototype demonstrates our novel force model.
