A new force-directed layout algorithm plugin named OpenOrd has just been released. It is one of the few force-directed layout algorithms that can scale to over 1 million nodes, making it ideal for large graphs.
- Very fast, scales to millions nodes
- Can be run in parallel, run it on multicore processors
- Aims to highlight clusters
Below is a small demo of how fast this algorithm is layouting a 10K nodes network, and only using one processor.
The algorithm original design and implementation can be found at this address. Kudos to the authors!
