A Tool for General Force-Directed Graph Layout and Co-Change Visualization
The tool CCVisu is a light-weight tool for force-directed graph layout. The tool reads the input graph from a file in RSF (Rigi Standard Format), which is a standard text format for relations. The layout of the graph is computed using standard techniques from force-directed layout. The tool supports several energy models, which can be selected by setting command line parameters. The weighted edge-repulsion LinLog energy model (default) is good for producing layouts that fulfill certain clustering criteria. The Fruchterman Reingold energy model is good for producing layouts that fulfill certain esthetic criteria like uniform edge length. CCVisu stores the resulting layout in certain text file formats such as VRML or SVG, or it displays the layout on the screen.
