A Hybrid Model for Drawing Dynamic and Evolving Graphs

05361.GaertlerMarco.Paper.568.pdf (0.4 MB)


Dynamic processes frequently occur in many applications. Visualizations of dynamically evolving data, for example as part of the data analysis, are typically restricted to a cumulative static view or an animation/sequential view. Both methods have their benefits and are often complementary in their use. We present a hybrid model that combines the two techniques. This is accomplished by 2.5D drawings which are calculated in an incremental way. The method has been evaluated on collaboration networks.
