We began in a small office in Berkeley. Though the nights were long and the menu was mostly takeout burritos, we developed our first graph layout algorithms and Tom Sawyer Software was born.
We introduced Hierarchical layout, Circular layout, Symmetric layout, and support for nested drawings. Plus, we launched Graph Layout Toolkit, a library of graph layout APIs.
We released Graph Editor Toolkit, the groundbreaking Orthogonal layout, and the first-ever incremental layout. We also received a NIST Advanced Technology Program Award for "Component-Based Software Technology Development."
We received a patent award for Labeling Graphical Features of Drawings, released the Graph Analysis Toolkit, and unified our graph rendering products as Tom Sawyer Visualization.
We opened a development center in Riga, Latvia and introduced Tom Sawyer Perspectives, a low-code graph and data visualization development platform.
We opened a development center in Mexico City. Perspectives advanced with support for composite node UIs and new map, timeline, and chart views. We also received Red Herring's Top 100 Global Award.
We released end-user applications: Model-Based Engineering, Business Process, and Graph Database Browser. We made our AWS Marketplace debut with Graph Database Browser.
We're passionate about the environment and avid recyclers so we were thrilled to go solar at our Berkeley office.
We opened up a third development center in Heraklion, Greece. Graph Database Browser was made available in AWS GovCloud (US) and we introduced Bundle layout and two-dimensional swimlanes.
