New Automatic Layout Method based on Magnetic Spring Model for Object Diagrams of OMT

Abstract

We propose to apply Magnetic Spring Model for arranging object diagrams of OMT. The main characteristics of our automatic layout method are: efficient space utilization; arranging connected classes nearer to each other; and keeping the meaning of relationships in the diagram. We carried out experiments to compare the new method and the existing ones. In our… (More)
