Edge Bundling Demo
This demo shows how edge bundling can be applied for reducing visual cluttering in dense
The edge curves are drawn using piecewise cubic bezier curves with gradient colors from
dark-blue (that starts from the source node) to light-blue (that leads to the target node
of the edge). For the approximation of the edge curves, a
For circular layouts, a circular-sector style is used for the visualization of the nodes.
Things to Try
Select one of the layout algorithms that support edge bundling using the combo-box in
Modify the strength of the bundles using the slider in the toolbar and notice how this
change influences the shape of the curves of the bundled edges. Values close to
lead to tight bundles, while values close to
lead to straight-line non-bundled edges. Values larger than
Hover over an edge to highlight its path and its source and target nodes. The edges are
highlighted also with gradient colors from red (source node) to gold (target node).
- Hover over a node to highlight its adjacent edges.
Right-click on a node to open a popup-menu and determine whether the edges adjacent to
the particular node or to all other currently selected nodes should be bundled or not.
