Weekly Report - 03/02/12
This week I worked on a new star layout algorithm that deals with the "outer" edges so that the "inner" edges will not overlap with the outer ones. The main idea is to rotate all of the inner nodes until it finds a solution where it does not overlap. It this solution fails, it will run another method which will reduce the arc between each nodes in the circular group.
The only problem with this algorithm now is that it does take a while to compute (approximately 4 seconds upon page loading). I also spent about a day documenting all the code I've been working on.
I've attached some images showing the star layout before and after.
