An object oriented approach to 3D network visualization


An object oriented approach to 3D network visualization

Chen, Dong Lin (2002) An object oriented approach to 3D network visualization. Other thesis, Concordia University.



A network diagram is a familiar graphic form that can represent may different kinds of information. To achieve an aesthetic layout presentation, in a 3-dimensional orthogonal drawing of a graph, vertices are mapped to grid points on a 3D rectangular integer lattice and edges are routed as segments along grid lines. In this report, we describe the design and implementation of an objected-oriented 3D network graphic layout program built upon OpenGL with simple and efficient layout algorithm. The system provides an easy-to-adapt graphic drawing framework for visualizing a network and for experimenting different layout algorithms in a pipelined fashion. Current implementation restricts vertices with maximum degree of six, and guarantees no crossings and optimized shortest path for edges.
