Use this if you are using igraph from R
Place several graphs on the same layout
merge_coords(graphs, layouts, method = "dla") layout_components(graph, layout = layout_with_kk, ...)
A list of graph objects.
A list of two-column matrices.
Character constant giving the method to use. Right now only
The input graph.
A function object, the layout function to use.
Additional arguments to pass to the
merge_coords takes a list of graphs and a list of coordinates and
places the graphs in a common layout. The method to use is chosen via the
method parameter, although right now only the
dla method is
dla method covers the graph with circles. Then it sorts the
graphs based on the number of vertices first and places the largest graph at
the center of the layout. Then the other graphs are placed in decreasing
order via a DLA (diffision limited aggregation) algorithm: the graph is
placed randomly on a circle far away from the center and a random walk is
conducted until the graph walks into the larger graphs already placed or
walks too far from the center of the layout.
layout_components function disassembles the graph first into
maximal connected components and calls the supplied
for each component separately. Finally it merges the layouts via calling
A matrix with two columns and as many lines as the total number of vertices in the graphs.
