Topology Viewer


This program can be used to display the topology of any network like structure. Notable about the program is that no positional information of the individual nodes is needed. It places all nodes at random positions and unfolds the emerging mesh using two simple rules.

  • Nodes push off each other.
  • Connections act like springs and drag the linked nodes together.


  • can load arbitrary structures from xml-files
  • physical simulation applied to unfold the mesh
  • mesh can be manipulated by dragging
  • nodes' states can be toggled between pinned and dynamic
  • underlying quad-map like structure to calculate a lot of nodes in real-time
