Please help me identify and understand this visual pattern, what's the common name used for such mindmap / constellation visualisations?
I am also looking a for a framework, library or math formula that will help me build something similar. I am especially interested in the auto arranging functionality as I will have plenty of nodes that I need to arrange on the screen in the best possible fashion. What's the math behing auto arranging somethoing in 2D?
I also need combine to that all with extensive zooming and map-like navigation.
If you know about anything that could help achieve my goal please don't hesitate to leave an answer.
My preferred language is ActionScript 3 / Flash but I will be thankful for any info, tutorial or article in any language.
