The Internet-based translation service GraphEX automatically converting between different graph formats, making it easier for users to take advantage of the full variety of graph drawing tools. GraphEx builds on the prototype translation component of the Graph Drawing Server [2], improving the handling of information mismatch problems and adding support for user-defined formats.
