3D Layouts?

In my opinion that is the kind of thing you see in movies, but is hardly
useful in the real world. A network that looks like a huge hairball in 2D
will also look like a hairball in 3D.

For smaller graphs it shouldn't be a problem to get them visualised this
way with this python module:

I would say that it can be helpful when you can interactively 'fly

through'

your data. It is possible to use a 'flying' interface with a game engine
type backend to allow interactive exploration of massive datasets.

Hi Guys,

I understand your concern, and yes, 3D is not a panacea. But there are some
studies that show when it is also displayed in 3D stereo path following
tasks can be more efficient than in 2D. Not a universal thing, but some
hints.

I think to a large extend it also depends on your display device. Just
displaying a 3D model on a 2D screen is not going to be much better. My
display device is a little different: http://assets.

But thanks for the answer!
