networkx.drawing.layout.circular_layout¶

circular_layout
(G, scale=1, center=None, dim=2)[source]¶ Position nodes on a circle.
Parameters:  G (NetworkX graph or list of nodes) – A position will be assigned to every node in G.
 scale (number (default: 1)) – Scale factor for positions.
 center (arraylike or None) – Coordinate pair around which to center the layout.
 dim (int) – Dimension of layout. If dim>2, the remaining dimensions are set to zero in the returned positions. If dim<2, a ValueError is raised.
Returns: pos – A dictionary of positions keyed by node
Return type: Raises: ValueError
– If dim < 2Examples
>>> G = nx.path_graph(4) >>> pos = nx.circular_layout(G)
Notes
This algorithm currently only works in two dimensions and does not try to minimize edge crossings.
