MultiPlane: A New Framework for Drawing Graphs in Three Dimensions
This poster presents a new framework for drawing graphs in three dimensions, which can be used effectively to visualise large and complex real world networks.
The new framework uses a divide and conquer approach. More specifically, the framework divides a graph into a set of smaller subgraphs, and then draws each subgraph in a 2D plane using well-known 2D drawing algorithms. Finally, a 3D drawing of the whole graph is constructed by combining each drawing in a plane, satisfying defined criteria.
