Black and white node link diagrams are the classic method to depict graphs, but these often fall short to give insight in large graphs or when attributes of nodes and edges play an important role. Graph visualization aims obtaining insight in such graphs using interactive graphical representations. A variety of ingredients, including color, shape, 3D, shading, and interaction can be used to this end. In this invited talk an overview is given of work on graph visualization of the visualization group of Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands. A wide variety of examples is shown and discussed using demos and animations.
