spiral_layout(G, scale=1, center=None, dim=2, resolution=0.35, equidistant=False)¶
Position nodes in a spiral layout.
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 (array-like or None) – Coordinate pair around which to center the layout.
dim (int) – Dimension of layout, currently only dim=2 is supported. Other dimension values result in a ValueError.
resolution (float) – The compactness of the spiral layout returned. Lower values result in more compressed spiral layouts.
equidistant (bool) – If True, nodes will be plotted equidistant from each other.
pos – A dictionary of positions keyed by node
- Return type
ValueError – If dim != 2
>>> G = nx.path_graph(4) >>> pos = nx.spiral_layout(G)
This algorithm currently only works in two dimensions.
