circular_layout(G, scale=1, center=None, dim=2)¶
Position nodes on a circle.
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. If dim>2, the remaining dimensions are set to zero in the returned positions. If dim<2, a ValueError is raised.
pos – A dictionary of positions keyed by node
- Return type
ValueError – If dim < 2
>>> G = nx.path_graph(4) >>> pos = nx.circular_layout(G)
This algorithm currently only works in two dimensions and does not try to minimize edge crossings.
