Multi-level Verticality Optimization: Concept, Strategies, and Drawing Scheme

In traditional multi-level graph drawing – known as Sugiyama’s framework – the number of crossings is considered one of the most important goals. Herein, we propose the alternative concept of optimizing the verticality of the drawn edges. We formally specify the problem, discuss its relative merits, and show that drawings that are good w.r.t. verticality … Read more
