Angle-Restricted Steiner Arborescences for Flow Map Layout

We introduce a new variant of the geometric Steiner arborescence problem, motivated by the layout of flow maps. Flow maps show the movement of objects between places. They reduce visual clutter by bundling curves smoothly and avoiding self-intersections. To capture these properties, our angle-restri...
