The KLay project encompasses all layout algorithms developed as part of the KIELER project. It aims at providing Java implementations of different layout algorithms to the Infrastructure for Meta Layout (KIML).

We currently have the following layout algorithms:

  • KLay Layered
    Implementation of the layer-based "hierarchical" approach by Sugiyama et al.
  • KLay Force
    Implementation of approaches based on physical models.
  • KLay Planar
    Implementation of the planarization-based "topology-shape-metrics" approach. (work in progress)
  • No labels
