API documentation for visualization library

Michael Galloy



Graphs are specified by a collection of nodes with some particular properties. The collection is specified by an IDL_Container and the nodes are any objects with a few properties: CHILDREN (an array of connected nodes) and NAME (a string specifying the node). COLOR is an optional attribute.

Furthermore, treemaps have an additional property: SIZE (float).

A good overview of different visualizations of trees can be found on Ben Fry's site.
