Force-directed edge bundling for undirected networks.
This program implements the force-directed edge bundling algorithm of Holten and van Wijk in C++ .
OpenGL, which is already available on most systems and a recent g++ compiler.
Just run make.
If no arguments are passed, the program prints the help menu that contains all available options.
Two input files are required: a CSV file (with spaces as delimiters) containing three columns (node label, x coordinate, y coordinate) and a space-delimitered CSV file containing the edge source and target labels.
Network in JSON format. Nodes have three keys (label, x, y), edges have only the coordinates of the subdivision points.
The test directory contains a test file of the US airline network. Running
./fdeb --nodes test/network_nodes.csv --edges test/network_edges.csv --transparency 0.2 --I 100 --cycles 6 --visualize
should produce this visualization output:
The graphs in  were generated using
fdeb (open version).
