Intelligent 3D Graph Exploration with Time-Travel Features
Graph visualization is an ongoing research area with many open problems. Graphs are often visualized in 2D space, but recently also 3D visualizations emerged. However the added third dimension add additional problems. In this paper we focus on navigating and exploring 3D graph visualizations. We present our approach for the automation of virtual camera movement for better graph exploration that also allows to play-back the exploration and fork other exploration paths at any time.
