GraphCoordinates3D

As of Version 10, all the functionality of the GraphUtilities package is built into the Wolfram System. >>

GraphCoordinates3D[g,options]

calculates a visually appealing 3D layout of the vertices of a graph g and returns the coordinates of the vertices.

Details

  • GraphCoordinates3D functionality is now available in the built-in Wolfram Language function GraphEmbedding.
  • To use GraphCoordinates3D, you first need to load the Graph Utilities Package using Needs["GraphUtilities`"].
  • GraphCoordinates3D returns the coordinates of the vertices as computed using a graph-drawing algorithm in 3D. It is useful when the coordinates of the vertices are needed, rather than a drawing of the graph, or when one needs to draw a graph repeatedly using the same layout but different style.
  • GraphCoordinates accepts the same options as GraphPlot.

Basic Examples  (2)

This plots a graph:

This gives the coordinates of the vertices in the previous drawing:

GraphCoordinates3D has been superseded by GraphEmbedding:

Scope  (1)

This plots a graph:

This gives the coordinates of the vertices in the previous drawing:

This plots the graph with two different styles, using the layout already calculated:

The relationship between vertices and coordinates is given by the following:

Properties & Relations  (1)

This shows a drawing of a small graph and the coordinates associated with the drawing:

This shows the relationship between vertex labels and their coordinates:

The coordinates can be reused to create the drawing without recomputing:
