Poster: Force-Directed Layout for Euler Diagrams

Micallef, Luana, Rodgers, Peter (2009) Poster: Force-Directed Layout for Euler Diagrams. In: IEEE Information Visualization 2009 (IEEE InfoVis 2009), October 2009, Atlantic City, NJ, USA. (KAR id:30586)


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.
