Diagram Visualization with Graphviz

Mikey Bronowski walks through an introduction to the Graphviz diagramming language:

I came across Graphviz which is an open-source graph visualization software initiated by AT&T Labs Research. It can process the graphs that are written in the DOT language.

What is the DOT language?

In short, it is a graph description language that has few keywords like graphdigraphnodeedge. You cannot miss it has something to do with graphs.

I’ve used the R implementation of this as well. It doesn’t create beautiful diagrams, but it is fast, easy, and the output makes sense.
