ForceAtlas2, a Continuous Graph Layout Algorithm for Handy Network Visualization Designed for the Gephi Software
Evolution of the quality of ForceAtlas2 variants at each iteration on the other facebook ego-networks of our dataset. The adaptive local speed is always the best. Local speed 0.001 converges poorly because the speed is too low. Local speed 0.1 converges poorly because it oscillates a lot: the speed is too high. Local speed 0.01 is sometimes adapted to the network, and sometimes not, but never outperforms the adaptive speed.
