- spiral_layout(G, scale=1, center=None, dim=2, resolution=0.35, equidistant=False)¶
Position nodes in a spiral layout.
- GNetworkX graph or list of nodes
A position will be assigned to every node in G.
- scalenumber (default: 1)
Scale factor for positions.
- centerarray-like or None
Coordinate pair around which to center the layout.
- dimint, default=2
Dimension of layout, currently only dim=2 is supported. Other dimension values result in a ValueError.
- resolutionfloat, default=0.35
The compactness of the spiral layout returned. Lower values result in more compressed spiral layouts.
- equidistantbool, default=False
If True, nodes will be positioned equidistant from each other by decreasing angle further from center. If False, nodes will be positioned at equal angles from each other by increasing separation further from center.
A dictionary of positions keyed by node
If dim != 2
This algorithm currently only works in two dimensions.
