Example

Elastic Hierarchies is hybrid tree visualization layout method proposed by Zhao et al. in 2005. This techniques is designed to combine the advantages of different tree visualizations methods.



Visual Elements

The nodes of Elastic Hierarchies is circle and rectangle. The links of Garden Tree Layout is straight line.

Coordinate System

The coordinate system of Treemap with Ovals is cartesian coordinate system.

Layout

Garden tree layout is a hybrid tree visualization of horizontal linear Layout and vertical linear TreeLayout.

      - Node-link tree

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

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

      - 1D Treemap

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

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