A Survey on Automated Metro Map Layout Methods

  title={A Survey on Automated Metro Map Layout Methods},
  author={Martin N{\"o}llenburg},
We give a comprehensive overview of the state of the art in automated metro map layout. A large number of algorithms for computing metro maps have been developed over the last 10– 15 years by researchers in computer science and related fields. In this survey, we distinguish three subtasks of generating metro map layouts (schematic network layout, label placement, crossing minimization) and give a list of ten design rules that form the basis of the layout algorithms. Our discussion starts with… CONTINUE READING
