A new paradigm for complex network visualization

Alvarez-Hamelin, Ignacio; Gaertler, Marco; Görke, Robert; Wagner, Dorothea


We propose a new layout paradigm for drawing a nested
decomposition of a large network. The visualization supports the
recognition of abstract features of the decomposition, while
drawing all elements. In order to support the visual analysis
that focuses on the dependencies of the individual parts of the
decomposition, we use an annulus as the general underlying
shape. This method has been evaluated using real world data and
offers surprising readability.
