- circular_layout(G, dim=2, scale=1)¶
Position nodes on a circle.
G : NetworkX graph
dim : int
Dimension of layout, currently only dim=2 is supported
scale : float
Scale factor for positions
A dictionary of positions keyed by node
This algorithm currently only works in two dimensions and does not try to minimize edge crossings.
