    Circular

    Emphasizes the clusters inherent in the topology of a map. It emphasizes prominent links between main objects and its peripherals. Object groups have radial placements.

    Use circular layouts for maps containing ring and star network topologies.

    Symmetrical

    Emphasizes the symmetrical patterns inherent in the map topology. It emphasizes an even distribution of objects, and minimizes edge crossings. Object groups have star spiral placements.

    Use symmetrical layouts for maps that have fairly homogenous or uniform clusters.

    File:Success_Center/Reusable_content_-_InfoDev/NPM/NPMAG_forMT/0V0/100/03000020_17x17.png Hierarchical

    Emphasizes mapped dependency relationships by placing objects at different levels.

    Use hierarchical layouts to depict data dependencies.

    File:Success_Center/Reusable_content_-_InfoDev/NPM/NPMAG_forMT/0V0/100/03000021_15x17.png Orthogonal

    Emphasizes compact drawings, and uses only horizontal and vertical edges. Objects are enlarged if necessary to provide enough space for edge connections.

    Use orthogonal layouts for maps that need to depict multiple clusters in a space-efficient manner.

    File:Success_Center/Reusable_content_-_InfoDev/NPM/NPMAG_forMT/0V0/100/03000022_15x17.png Tree

    Emphasizes parent and child relationships. Child objects are arranged farther from the root object than their parent objects.

    Use tree layouts for maps that have a central control object.

    File:Success_Center/Reusable_content_-_InfoDev/NPM/NPMAG_forMT/0V0/100/03000023_19x17.png Reorganize Moves all mapped objects back to the center of the map view.
