In a recent survey, Koschke , (see Chapter on Software Engineering) investigated the perspectives on software visualization of 83 researchers in the areas of software maintenance, reverse engineering, and re-engineering. One ofthe main results was that graphs have been identified as the most often used kind of visualization. Since in these areas graphs are generally computed by automatic analyses, tools are needed for laying them out automatically. Graph visualization and automatic layout are also important issues according to the survey by Bassil and Keller  on software visualization.
