"SpiralEmbedding" (Graph Layout Method)

Details & Suboptions

  • The spiral embedding is a graph-drawing technique to position vertices of a graph on a 3D spiral projected to 2D.
  • The spiral embedding is typically used to lay out path graphs.
  • Possible settings to control the layout include:
  • "OptimalOrder"Trueoptimal ordering of vertices to minimize edge crossings
