Nevron Diagram for .NET White Papers

Nevron white paper using maps in diagrams

Nowadays the globalization process is stronger than ever and many companies sell products and services all over the world. That's why software applications in many areas need to provide geographical and mapping information to the end users. World's most popular format for storing such information is the ESRI shapefile. There are hundreds of freely available ESRI maps on the web and now you can easily take advantage of them using Nevron Diagram and its integrated mapping features.

Nevron white paper layered graph layout

The layered graph layout algorithm aims to highlight the main direction or flow within a directed graph. This layout algorithm is very appropriate for hierarchically organized diagrams, organization charts, etc. Nevron is pleased to present you the NLayeredGraphLayout class which implements the layered graph drawing algorithm within Nevron Diagram.

Nevron white paper orthogonal graph layout

There is only one layout algorithm that can produce a nice drawing of almost every kind of graph. This is the Orthogonal Graph Layout Algorithm. As you can expect its unmatched power and universality come with a price – it is very complex and extremely hard to implement. That’s why Nevron is proud to present you the NOrthogonalGraphLayout class which implements the orthogonal graph drawing algorithm.

QUOTE We use Nevron Diagram for .NET in our client server software that allows Enel’s operational compartments to plan the electrical net; the software enable electrical engineers to find less expensive, but still efficient, solutions for the electrical net. The software works in disconnected mode, as a smart client, and allows the personnel to simulate various configuration of the electrical net; using the client program it is possible to add, remove or substitute pieces of the MT electrical net representation as well as change connection points.

The simulator, then, allows to emulate every single point of failure of the net and for each of them reconfigures the net for the best off-line time (breakers take several maneuvers and counter-maneuvers to operate correctly). At the end of the simulation an animation is recorded for the best solution found (time/price). The animation is then displayed , using Nevron Graph controls, allowing the electrical engineer to check the correctness of the result and the various “moves” that the simulator toke to get to the best solution. When the personnel is then satisfied with the solution it uses the client application to update the remote DB with a request to acquire the needed resources to build this new configuration on the real net.
