4.1 Radial and hyperbolic trees
Sometimes, it is useful to be able to see the ‘full’ hierarchy all in one go. One of the most efficient ways of doing this is to use a. A radial tree plots the ‘apex’ of the tree at the centre of a circle, with the ‘child’ branches radiating out from it.
A hyperbolic tree viewer works in much the same way as a radial tree viewer, but uses a different way of visualising the links.
