Motivated by applications of social network analysis and of Web search clustering engines, we describe an algorithm and a system for the display and the visual analysis of two graphs G1 and G2 such that each Gi is defined on a different data set with its own primary relationships and there are secondary relationships between the vertices of G1 and those of G2. Our main goal is to compute a drawing of G1 and G2 that makes clearly visible the relations between the two graphs by avoiding their
