VGJ is an automated system capable of converting a textual description or a drawing of a graph into a well organized and readable layout of the graph. VGJ (visualizing graphs with Java), includes a graph editor and a set of algorithms that will automatically layout and draw a graph. The graph drawing package can be accessed through the web at: mccreary/graph_drawing.html
