After an introduction to the subject area and a concise treatment of the technical foundations for the subsequent chapters, this book features 14 chapters on state-of-the-art graph drawing software systems, ranging from general "tool boxes'' to customized software for various applications. These chapters are written by leading experts: they follow a uniform scheme and can be read independently from each other. The text covers many industrial applications.

This book is designed to describe fundamental algorithmic techniques for constructing drawings of graphs. Suitable as a book or reference manual, its chapters offer an accurate, accessible reflection of the rapidly expanding field of graph drawing.
Michael Kaufmann, Dorothea Wagner
Graph drawing is a dynamic and rapidly growing subfield of computer science and mathematics. It comprises all aspects of visualizing structural relations between objects. The range of topics dealt with extends from graph theory, graph algorithms, geometry, and topology to visual languages, visual perception, and information visualization, and to computer-human interaction and graphics design. The automated generation of graph drawings has important consequences for many subfields of computer science as well as for a broad variety of interdisciplinary application fields. This monograph gives a systematic overview of graph drawing and introduces the reader gently to the state of the art in the area. The presentation concentrates on algorithmic aspects, with an emphasis on interesting visualization problems with elegant solutions. Much attention is paid to a uniform style of writing and presentation, consistent terminology, and complementary coverage of the relevant issues throughout the 10 chapters. An overview of existing graph drawing systems, a comprehensive bibliography, and a subject index round off the presentation. This tutorial is ideally suited as an introduction for newcorners to graph drawing. Ambitioned practitioners and researchers active in the area will find it a valuable source of reference and information.
