New Quality Metrics for Graph Visualisation

Seok-Hee Hong, University of Sydney


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.
