Structural graph layout for KeyLines

This page is from our blog archive

It's still useful, but it's worth searching for up-to-date information in one of our more recent blog posts.

Our new Structural layout groups nodes which are structurally identical – i.e., have the same connections.



The layout spaces nodes so the structure is easier to see, and uses the fact that your vision is good at spotting & matching shapes:

  • Nodes which are in the same group are laid out in a circle and placed close together.
  • Groups of two are laid out on top of each other.
  • Groups of three in a tight triangle, four in a diamond shape, etc.

This layout has been really effective on some of our data sets, so we’re excited to see how our KeyLines users find it!
