  author={Ka-Ping Yee and Danyel Fisher and Rachna Dhamija and Marti A. Hearst},
We describe a new animation technique for supporting interactive exploration of a graph, building on the wellknown radial tree layout method. When a node is selected to become the center of interest, the visualization performs an animated transition to a new layout. Our approach makes the transition easy to follow by linearly interpolating the polar coordinates of the nodes and enforcing constraints on the layout. We apply this technique to visualizations of social networks and the dynamic… CONTINUE READING
