The graphael system implements several classic force-directed layout methods, as well as several novel layout methods for non-Euclidean geometries, including hyperbolic and spherical. The system can handle large graphs, using multi-scale variations of the force-directed methods. Finally, the system can layout and visualize graphs that evolve though time, using static views, animation, and morphing.
