Small Wide World


Small Wide World is a library for Python, C++, and PHP which is open source. It allows you to visualize data sets that use relationships to determine their position on a map.

Computer networks, social networks, and so on can be mapped with this software.

Small Wide World is written using Physics algorithms that should be familiar to any person with some knowledge of springs. I\'m making a few assumptions, but most of the algorithm is pretty legit.

The equation for constant acceleration is:
p(t) = p0 + v0 * t + 0.5 * a0 * t * t

I am assuming that acceleration is constant for small periods of time and that velocity is practically zero using the equation:
p(t) = p0 + 0.5 * a0 * t * t

SWW is a library.
