A new paradigm for complex network visualization [report]

Ignacio Alvarez-Hamelin, Marco Gaertler, Robert Görke, Dorothea Wagner
We propose a new layout paradigm for drawing a nested decomposition of a large network. The visualization supports the recognition of abstract features of the decomposition, while drawing all elements. In order to support the visual analysis that focuses on the dependencies of the individual parts of the decomposition, we use an annulus as the general underlying shape. This method has been evaluated using real world data and offers surprising readability.
