Generalized Pythagoras Trees: A Fractal Approach to Hierarchy Visualization

  title={Generalized Pythagoras Trees: A Fractal Approach to Hierarchy Visualization},
  author={Fabian Beck and Michael Burch and Tanja Munz and Lorenzo Di Silvestro and Daniel Weiskopf},
Through their recursive definition, many fractals have an inherent hierarchical structure. An example are binary branching Pythagoras Trees. By stopping the recursion in certain branches, a binary hierarchy can be encoded and visualized. But this binary encoding is an obstacle for representing general hierarchical data such as file systems or phylogenetic trees, which usually branch into more than two subhierarchies. We hence extend Pythagoras Trees to arbitrarily branching trees by adapting… CONTINUE READING
