random_layout(G, dim=2, center=None)¶
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.
- G (NetworkX graph or list of nodes) – A position will be assigned to every node in G.
- dim (int) – Dimension of layout.
- center (array-like or None) – Coordinate pair around which to center the layout.
pos – A dictionary of positions keyed by node
>>> G = nx.lollipop_graph(4, 3) >>> pos = nx.random_layout(G)
