Aim of the Research
The aim of the research is to significantly
improve the analysis of big network data
using Euler diagrams with graphs by
automated visualization (Software).
Example: Facebook is a grouped network,
which has millions of users. This big
network needs to be analyzed using an
automated tool.

Introduction
Euler diagrams are an attractive information
visualization tool which represent relationship
between the sets (categories).
Figure: Relationship between the Universities
9.
Introduction (Contd.)
Graphs (often termed as network diagrams)
represent the relationship between the data
items.
Figure: Relationship between the researchers collaborating with
different University researchers.

Introduction (Contd.)
Euler diagrams + graphs will represent the
relationship between the sets (categories) and
the data items (people).
Figure: Relationship between the Universities and the lecturers collaborating with the
different University lecturers.
13.
Introduction (contd.)
Two important methods in developing Euler
diagrams and Graphs in combination are:
1. Euler drawing method
2. Graph drawing method
>> Our goal is to combine both the methods
successfully considering their properties.
14.
Euler Drawing Method
The circle based drawing method for
producing Euler diagram was recently
devised by Stapleton et al. [1].
The three different colors are described as
different zones as given by the abstract
description: {A, B,AB, BC}.
Figure: Euler diagram generated
15.
Euler Drawing Method (contd.)
Remarks:
Automatically draws Euler diagram using
only circles to represent any data set.
Good layout is generated compared to
other previous methods.
16.
Graph Drawing Method
One of the old and traditional graph
drawing method is Force-Directed
Layouts method [2].
The force-directed algorithm is based on
the physical model of attraction and
repulsion.
Figure: Left handed diagram has edge-crossings in graph and
right handed diagram has avoided edge-crossings in graph.
18.
Combining both drawing Methods
A relatively new method combining both
Euler drawing method and graph drawing
method will be developed which will have
benefits and impacts of Euler diagrams
and graphs.

Expected Result
The below figure is an example of the expected result
(automatic visualization software) showing Euler diagrams and graph in
combination for analyzing research network.
Figure: Example shows how researchers are connected in computer field
