This demonstration shows the GOLD system, an extensible software architecture integrating several declarativelayout strategies, including spring-embedders, local constraints and genetic algorithms. The underlying paradigm is to consider graph layout problems as geometric constraint satisfaction problems. In addition to satisfying global aesthetics criteria, the system allows for the interactive specification of local criteria per vertex (edge).
