Real-world information can often be expressed as a graph that consists of nodes and edges. Graphs are often effectively represented in a visual manner. To make visual representations of graphs easily available, researchers have proposed numerous techniques for automatic visualization of graphs [1].

An important class of graphs is the general undirected graph, which imposes no restrictions on its structure as well as having no directed edges. The forcedirected approach [1] is often adopted to visualize general undirected graphs, and works well for graphs with hundreds of nodes.
