  1. Do you describe an algorithm for layout a network with several disconnected components?
    I think that ‘classical’ modification of force-directed scheme would produce better results.

  2. I agree, subgraph partitions make a lot of sense. I’ve used this before in 2 ways: binning as you have, but also hierarchical graph layout in which th graph of components is first laid out then each connected component.

    Another useful thing to explore is the initial conditions prior to layout. This can get you quite a way to improvement.

  3. Hi Marc, I have just updated my NodeXL installation and the binning layout seems to have disappeared. Help! I was loving this feature.
