Introducing Bundle Layout and Support for MongoDB 4.2 and Neo4j 4.1

Tom Sawyer Perspectives 9.1.0 Includes Two-Dimensional Swimlane Drawings

Berkeley, Calif., July 1, 2020—Tom Sawyer Software, the global leader in graph and data visualization and analysis technology, announces the release of Tom Sawyer Perspectives 9.1.0. This release features our new Bundle layout. When other layout styles might visualize dense graphs as hairballs, Bundle layout produces clear drawings by bundling together edges that are attached to the same node.

With this layout style, customers can:

"Bundle layout solves the age-old problem of the hairball," said Brendan Madden, CEO. "If the number of edges are several times the number of nodes, the drawing becomes unreadable. By intelligently routing related edges in the same row or column, visibility dramatically improves."

"Many of our customers are visualizing big datasets," continued Mr. Madden. "Bundle layout helps them see the overall structure of their graph so they can gain insight quickly."
