random_layout(G, dim=2, scale=1.0, center=None)¶
Position nodes uniformly at random.
For every node, a position is generated by choosing each of dim coordinates uniformly at random on the default interval [0.0, 1.0), or on an interval of length \(scale\) centered at \(center\).
NumPy (http://scipy.org) is required for this function.
- G (NetworkX graph or list of nodes) – A position will be assigned to every node in G.
- dim (int) – Dimension of layout.
- scale (float (default 1)) – Scale factor for positions
- center (array-like (default scale*0.5 in each dim)) – Coordinate around which to center the layout.
pos – A dictionary of positions keyed by node
