random_layout¶

random_layout
(G, dim=2, center=None)[source]¶ Position nodes uniformly at random in the unit square.
For every node, a position is generated by choosing each of dim coordinates uniformly at random on the interval [0.0, 1.0).
NumPy (http://scipy.org) is required for this function.
Parameters:  G (NetworkX graph or list of nodes) – A position will be assigned to every node in G.
 dim (int) – Dimension of layout.
 center (arraylike or None) – Coordinate pair around which to center the layout.
Returns: pos – A dictionary of positions keyed by node
Return type: Examples
>>> G = nx.lollipop_graph(4, 3) >>> pos = nx.random_layout(G)
