Welcome to the GraphAEL project, based at the University of Arizona!   GraphAEL extracts three types of evolving graphs from the Graph Drawing literature and creates 2D and 3D animations of the evolutions.  We study citation graphs, topic graphs, and collaboration graphs.  We also create different graphs which capture the nature of change between two given time periods.

On this website you'll be able to read our project paper, view full color images and movies from our graphing program, and directly access our database through our GUI.
