New Quality Metrics for Graph Visualisation
Event date:  November 3, 2016 4:00 PM  to 5:00 PM

Talk Abstract

Quality metrics are significant simply because they measure success or failure of a graph drawing method. Most importantly, they are used as optimisation goals in designing graph drawing algorithms.

This talk will present two new family of quality metrics for graph drawing: faithfulness and shape-based metrics.

We illustrate these metrics with examples, and apply the metrics to data from previous experiments, leading to the suggestion that the new metrics are effective.
