ForceAtlas2, a Continuous Graph Layout Algorithm for Handy Network Visualization Designed for the Gephi Software
Evolution of the layout quality for a single network over 2048 steps. Rows are the 4 different layouts and columns the 3 different randomizations. The red dot is the “Quick and dirty point” where 50% of the maximum quality is reached, and the blue dot is the “Quasi-optimal point” where 90% of the maximum quality is reached.
