This is an invitation to the research area of graph drawing. It encompasses basic research such as graph theory, complexity theory, data structures, and graph algorithms as well as applied research such as software libraries, implementations, and applications. Application domains include areas within computer science (e. g., information visualization, software engineering, model-based design, automated cartography) as well as outside (e. g., molecular biology and the social sciences). A selection of results demonstrates the influence of graph drawing on other areas and vice versa.
