Abstract

Graphviz is a heterogeneous collection of graph drawing tools containing batch layout programs (dot, neato, fdp, twopi); a platform for incremental layout (Dynagraph); customizable graph editors (dotty, Grappa); a server for including graphs in Web pages (WebDot); support for graphs as COM objects (Montage); utility programs useful in graph visualization; and libraries for attributed graphs. The software is available under an Open Source license. The article[1] provides a detailed description of the package.
