Introduction

The ARF layout is developed by the Chair of Systems Design of ETH Zürich. It is called ARF for “attractive and repulsive forces”.

Plugin Owner’s Notes

The ARF layout is developed by the Chair of Systems Design of ETH Zürich. It is implemented in Cuttlefish (http://cuttlefish.sourceforge.net), which is a network workbench application that visualizes the networks with some of the best known layout algorithms. The Cuttlefish team ported the ARF layout to Gephi so that Gephi’s users can also use it. The ARF layout algorithm relies on the balancing of two antagonistic forces. It is called ARF for “attractive and repulsive forces”. Note: Cuttlefish will soon support export to the graphml file format, which would allow its users to visualize their networks with Gephi as well.

Random 3D Layout

A simple layout plugin that places nodes randomly within a 3D space. Each node is given an x, y, and z. While normally this Z is not seen in the 2D Gephi view, it is used by other 3D algorithms (like Force Atlas 3D) and can be exported.

Network Splitter 3D

This layout can be used to split a network layout into distinct Z-Layers (Network Splitter 3D Z-Layers are user-defined clusters). E.g. after using layouts such as: Yifan Hu, Fruchterman Reingold, Force Atlas, Circular, Layered, OpenOrd, etc. Computed Z-Layers can be used in Gephi ranking and/or partition procedures. To use this plugin it is quite simple: [...]
