Graph drawing addresses the problem of visualizing structural information. More specifically it is concerned with the construction of geometric representations of abstract graphs and networks. The automatic generation of drawings of graphs has important applications in key computer science technologies such as database design, software engineering, VLSI and network design and visual interfaces and also in engineering, chemistry and biology. The range of issues being investigated in graph drawing includes algorithms, graph theory, order theory, visual languages.
A great deal of research in graph drawing is motivated by applications
to systems for viewing and interacting with graphs. The interaction
between theoretical advances and implemented solutions is an important
part of the area of graph drawing.
