Example

ClockTree with links is designed to visualize the hierarchical data with other relations between the nodes. It encodes the parent-child relations with orthogonal edges, which facilitates users to understand the symmetrical characteristic of the hierarchical data.



Visual Elements

The nodes of ClockTree is sectors. The links of ClockTree is orthogonal edges.

Coordinate System

The coordinate system of ClockTree is polar coordinate system.

Layout

Along the angular axis, the relation between root and subtree group is juxtapose. The relation among subtrees within subtree group is flatten.

Along the radial axis, the relation between root and subtree group is within. The relation among subtrees within subtree group is align.
