Fast Node Overlap Removal in Graph Layout Adjustment

  title={Fast Node Overlap Removal in Graph Layout Adjustment},
  author={T. Dwyer and Kimbal George Marriott and Peter James Stuckey},
Most graph layout algorithms in the field of graph drawing treat nodes as points. The problem of node overlap removal is to adjust the layout generated by such methods so that nodes of non-zero width and height do not overlap, yet are as close as possible to their original positions. We give an O(n logn) algorithm for achieving this assuming that the number of nodes overlapping any single node is bounded by some constant. This method has two parts, a constraint generation algorithm which… CONTINUE READING
