Partition the large graph into subgraphs. 2. Compute the drawing for each subgraph using the STT method. 3. Now consider the edges between subgraphs. Determine the overall layout, and route the edges between subgraphs. The smaller the subgraphs, the less machine time, but the more difficult the composition (the third step) becomes. In this method there is not enough consideration given to the composition step. One possible solution to this problem is to use the drawing method for compound graphs discussed in Chapter 4.

3. Straight Line Drawing (Force-Directed Layout) Lipton, North & Sandberg (85) proposed an algorithm for the generation of straight line drawings with as much symmetry as possible. A completely different approach to Outlines of Automatic Graph Drawing Methods 43 symmetry was proposed by Eades (84) avoiding the calculation of automorphisms. This algorithm, called the spring embedder is a heuristic method based on mechanical model. This method simulates a mechanical system, with rings for vertices and springs for edges, and seeks the stable placement.

The principal aim is to explain the various styles of drawing that are currently possible; this simplifies the description of technical problems. In order to understand the features of each drawing method, explanatory figures and reference documents are used as much as possible. Readers with particular requirements should be able to find a drawing method suitable to their problem by reading this chapter. For technical details, read Chapter 4 or one of the reference documents introduced. Most of the methods described in this chapter can be found in Walker (90), Eades (91), Sugiyama (88b, 89b), Eades & Sugiyama (90), Eades & Tamassia (89), Fruchterman & Reingold (91), Di Battista, Eades, Tamassia & Tollis (94), and Herman, Melancon & Marshall(OO).
