Abstract

In this paper we present a set of extension techniques to stabilize interactive dynamic graph layout algorithms. It works with different existing Focus & Context methods. We first deal with the initial placement of newly inserted nodes to mitigate acting forces in the layout algorithm. Then, their influence on the existing layout is gradually increased to create a smooth transition between the old and the new layout. To complement this approach we use a look-ahead strategy that integrates additional nodes in the layout to stabilize the layout even more. Our approach is validated using both quantitative and qualitative measures.
