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.

Layered Layout

This plugin provides layout, where nodes are in different layers (orbits). Assignment of node to layer depends on the value of numerical attribute of node. This layout can very nicely visualize the “Small-World Phenomenon”, where the layer assignement depends on the distance between key node and the others (Erdös number in the SNA Metrics Plugin).
