I have a real-world graph that I wish to draw in one dimension. Here's the graph:
I'd like to draw it using some kind of force-directed graph drawing method. I'm supposing this is both possible and practical, but it may be that there's some obstacle I'm unaware of. So, I'll begin with:
Question: Is 1D force-directed graph drawing possible and practical?
And if so:
Question: Does there exist software for force-directed graph drawing in 1D?
Gephi (among other packages) can provide a force-directed graph drawing in 2D, but I don't believe it can draw in 1D.
(Motivation: I'd like to see how similar the 1D force-directed drawing is to the drawing above, which places the vertices equispaced along the line, and in the order in which they are generated.)
