Better Layouts

Feb 20, 2010 at 2:19 AM

I've been keeping a close eye on NodeXL as I think it's a fabulous project with lots of potential.  One of the things that I've been finding lately is that the layout algorithms in NodeXL aren't as good as the layouts in some of the other tools I've used (Visualyzer).  Is improving layouts, and/or adding additional layouts something that is being worked on?  

I've found that the layouts in NodeXL have a particularly hard time with minimizing edge overlap.

We hope to implement one or two additional layout algorithms, although we're not sure when we'll get to them.
