random_layout(G, dim=2)[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

A position will be assigned to every node in G.

dim : int

Dimension of layout.

Returns :

dict :

A dictionary of positions keyed by node


>>> G = nx.lollipop_graph(4, 3)
>>> pos = nx.random_layout(G)
