GVMAP(1) General Commands Manual GVMAP(1) NAME gvmap - find clusters and create a geographical map highlighting clus- ters. SYNOPSIS gvmap [-ekv?] [ options ] [ -o outfile ] [ files ] DESCRIPTION gvmap takes as input a graph in DOT format, finds node clusters and produces a rendering of the graph as a geographic-style map, with clus- ters highlighted, in xdot format. The input graph must have node positions and width/height information defined, and nodes must not overlap. OPTIONS The following options are supported: -a k The integer k specifies the average number of artificial points added along the bounding box of the labels. Such artificial points are added to avoid a country boundary cutting through the boundary box of the labels. Computing time is proportional to k; hence, for large graphs, a small value of k is suggested. If k = -1, a suitable value of k is automatically selected based on the graph size. By default k = -1. -b v The real number v specifies the line width used to draw the polygon boundaries, with v < 0 for no line. By default v = 0. -c k The integer k specifies color scheme used to color the coun- tries. By default k = 1. Acceptable values are: 0 : no polygons 1 : pastel 2 : blue to yellow 3 : white to red 4 : light grey to red 5 : primary colors 6 : sequential single hue red 7 : sequential single hue lighter red 8 : light grey -C d The integer d specifies the maximum number of clusters (coun- tries) allowed. By default d = 0, which means that there is no limit. -d d The integer d specifies the random seed used during color assignment optimization that maximize color difference between neighbpring countries. -e If specified, edges will be included in the final output. -g c Specifies the bounding box color. If not specified, a bounding box is not drawn. -k If specified, increases the randomesss of outer boundary. -r k The number of random points k (integer) used to define sea and lake boundaries. If 0, auto assigned. By default v = 0 -s v The real number v specifies the depth of the sea and lake shores in points. If 0, auto assigned. By default v = 0. -O Do NOT do color assignment optimization that maximizes color difference between neighboring countries -o<file> Put output in <file>. Default output is stdout -v Verbose mode. -z c Specified the polygon line color. Default is black. EXAMPLES Given a graph foo.gv, one way to generate a layout and highlight the clusters is to first select a layout engine with a suitable overlap removal method, then feed the output to gvmap, and finally render the map using specific graphics format. For example, the following pipeline creates a map with edges in semi-transparent light gray and nodes laid out using sfdp: sfdp -Goverlap=prism foo.gv | gvmap -e | neato -n2 -Ecolor=#55555522 -Tpng > foo.png The shell script gvmap.sh provides a shorthand for such pipelines. For example, the above pipeline can be achieved using gvmap.sh -Ae -Ecolor=#55555522 -Tpng foo.gv > foo.png AUTHOR Yifan Hu <firstname.lastname@example.org> ATTRIBUTES See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes: +---------------+------------------+ |ATTRIBUTE TYPE | ATTRIBUTE VALUE | +---------------+------------------+ |Availability | image/graphviz | +---------------+------------------+ |Stability | Volatile | +---------------+------------------+ SEE ALSO gvmap.sh(1), sfdp(1), neato(1), gvpr(1) E.
