- Compound Graph Exploration (Bachelor, Master)
A new graph exploration approach should be examined which is uses different zoom levels for different compound nodes. This tries to map the "Google Maps approach" of only showing the information of interest at any given zoom level to the field of graph exploration.
- Improvements to Spline Edge Routing (Bachelor, Master)
Spline edge routing closely follows the routes orthogonal edges would take. A Bachelor's thesis could work on improving how splines connect to their end points to make the results look more natural. A Master's thesis could look at improving the routes splines take through a diagram more generally.
- Improve Orthogonal Edge Routing (Bachelor)
The layered layout approach usually uses orthogonal edges to lay out flow-based diagrams. Our orthogonal routing generator, which produces orthogonal edges, suffers from two problems which should be solved as part of a thesis. The problems are tracked as issues 143 and 318 in the ELK project.
- Control Flow Graph Exploration / Visualization (Bachelor)
Use pragmatics concepts (automatic layout, focus & context) for exploring/visualizing control flow graphs and specific paths, eg. as computed by OTAWA WCET analysis tool, eg. using KLighD.
Further possible thesis topics can be found in ELK's GitHub repository. Note, however, that some issues there may already be worked on.
