Projects / aiSee


aiSee reads a textual, easy-to-read, and easy-to-learn graph specification and automatically calculates a customizable graph layout. This layout is then displayed, and can be printed or interactively explored. aiSee features 15 basic graph layout algorithms (including force-directed layout), recursive subgraph nesting, fish-eye views, and an animation interface. It has been optimized to handle huge graphs automatically generated by applications (e.g. compilers).

          Release Notes: This release supports exporting a very simple, ASCII-format list of all nodes and edges of a graph along with their coordinates. When exporting graphs containing bitmap icons to SVG, it offers the option of embedding the icons in the output SVG file rather that just referencing them by their paths. Minor performance and usability improvements have been made. Numerous bugs have been fixed.
