We extend the notion of canonical orderings to cylindric triangulations. This allows us to extend the incremental straight-line drawing algorithm of de Fraysseix, Pach and Pollack to this setting. Our algorithm yields in linear time a crossing-free straight-line drawing of a cylindric triangulation G with n vertices on a regular grid ℤ/wℤ×[0..h], with w≤2n and h≤n(2d+1), where d is the (graph-) distance between the two boundaries. As a by-product, we can also obtain in linear time a crossing… 

Fast Spherical Drawing of Triangulations: An Experimental Study of Graph Drawing Tools

TLDR
This work designs and implements a linear time algorithm for the computation of spherical drawings provided with theoretical guarantees, which is extremely fast and can be used as initial placer for spherical iterative methods and spring embedders.

Periodic Planar Straight-Frame Drawings with Polynomial Resolution

TLDR
This algorithm is the first to achieve two important aesthetic criteria: the drawing fits in a straight rectangular frame, and the grid area is polynomial, precisely the grid size is O(n 4×n 4).

Drawing Bobbin Lace Graphs, or, Fundamental Cycles for a Subclass of Periodic Graphs

TLDR
It is argued that such a polygonal schema always exists for combinatorial embeddings satisfying the conditions of bobbin lace patterns, and that it can therefore create a pattern, given a graph with a fixed combinatorsial embedding of genus one.

Crossing-free straight-line drawing of graphs on the flat torus
