Case Study: Intelligent Data Provision in the Automotive and Rail IndustriesHow Austrian researchers are rethinking automotive R&D using data visualization and yFiles. In a research project, VIRTUAL VEHICLE develops a prototypical digital decision-making basis: a graph database for data collection and an application for visualizing and navigating the connected data.
yWorks releases version 2.2 of yFiles for HTML!
With the new 2.2 release of yFiles for HTML yWorks again proves to be the leading provider of professional high-quality graph diagramming software libraries. The new release contains new features, unmatched in the industry, that will both delight existing customers and will open the product to a wider audience range.
yFiles and Neo4j: Custom Visualization Solutions
Neo4j is great for storing and processing large amounts of connected data. For example, in web analytics, where click-paths and custom events get logged, it is easy to get that data into Neo4j. Once the data is in the graph database, complex queries may be executed that help both site administrators and site owners get a good understanding of how their users and visitors use the website or ecommerce store.
‘Game of Thrones’ Relationship Graph
Every year, the Graph Drawing conference organizes a contest which sets the task to visualize predetermined graph data. This year, the data consists of a graph that presents the relationships between 84 characters from the popular TV series ‘Game of Thrones’. Since our yFiles diagramming library is designed to arrange and visualize graph structures, we decided to participate in the contest. The image above shows a preview of our contribution. Read on if you want to find out how we created it or skip to the final result.
Automatic Metro Map Generation
Metro maps are a very important tool when it comes to illustrating routes of a public transport system. The history of metro maps or, more generally, transport maps, goes back to the famous 'Tube Map' created by Harry Beck in 1931 which shows the London Underground. Nowadays they exist for almost every larger urban area, making it easy for passengers to quickly gain an overview over the possible routes and reachable stations. Simply put, metro maps consist of stations or stops which are connected by lines. So we thought that they are a perfect match for the visualization using our yFiles diagramming library. Our goal was to automatically generate maps from data retrieved online and to polish the results using styles similar to the ones found in official maps. As the computation of a new metro map layout is quite CPU intensive, the goal was not to create maps in real time.

BBL Liga Graph - Eine App für die Basketball Bundesliga
Auf dieser Seite stellen wir euch unsere Basketball Bundesliga App “BBL Liga Graph” vor.
yWorks releases version 2.0.1 of yFiles for HTML!
This new version brings the yFiles for HTML GWT Overlay to support development with the GWT Web Toolkit (GWT) and also adds many new source code demo applications, including an extensive BPMN demo application with high-quality BPM visualizations and specialized automatic layout.
yWorks releases version 1.4 of the 1.x technology line of yFiles for HTML!
This version adds support for Sankey diagrams with their characteristic thick edges to the Hierarchic layout and brings improved support in the Hierarchic layout algorithm to maintain a user's mental map when collapsing and expanding group nodes in a diagram. There is also new support for layout of regular substructures in the Organic layout style and a new edge routing style in the Circular layout, Radial layout and the Tree layout algorithms, where edge paths are bundled to prevent visual clutter in diagrams.
With this version the feature set of the automatic layouts in the 1.x technology line of yFiles for HTML is on a par with yFiles for HTML 2.0.
yWorks releases version 2.0 of yFiles for HTML!
This new version marks a major step and brings an extensively improved and streamlined API. Throughout the API there are more concise function names now and optional, default, and rest parameters can be used; there is support for "option"/object parameters in many places. ECMAScript 6 features like Promises and iterables are supported and also ECMAScript 6 and TypeScript class declarations.
The class and interface hierarchies have been simplified as well as the implementations for components, built-in styles, and input modes; working with nested/grouped graphs and configuration of layout algorithms has also been simplified.
yWorks releases version 1.3 of yFiles for HTML!
The new version brings improved browser event propagation behavior and enhanced customization support thereof, and many improvements to make editing diagrams even easier: new duplicate action, enhanced copy/paste behavior, enhanced label snapping and label editing support.
The yFiles modules's file format now follows the Universal Module Definition (UMD) pattern to easily enable a variety of different script loading schemes.
Now online: Updated yFiles for HTML documentation browser.
Find the yFiles for HTML Developer's Guide now also integrated in the online yFiles for HTML documentation browser.
Use the documentation browser to quickly navigate the technical documentation while working on your yFiles for HTML project.
yWorks releases version 1.2 of yFiles for HTML!
This new version brings support for rendering with HTML5 Canvas. TypeScript bindings and an optional GWT overlay enhance development possibilities, and many additional developer tools further improve the development support.
Also, this version introduces a new layout algorithm for radial layout that places nodes in a concentrical fashion. The Balloon style tree layout algorithm brings new placement options and new integrated node labeling support.
The possibilities of the library are presented in many new demos and improved demos.
Third EAP version of the yFiles for HTML GWT Extension available!
Third EAP version of the yFiles for HTML GWT Extension available!

yWorks releases version 1.1 of yFiles for HTML!
It adds support for creating connections from edges to other edges and introduces a new edge routing algorithm that can generate orthogonal as well as octilinear edge paths. The hierarchical layout algorithm features new support for octilinear edge paths, too.
