  1. Graphviz is a package of open source tools initiated by AT&T Labs Research for graph visualization. The name is a stylized contraction of 'graph visualisation software', i.e. software that provides a way of representing structural information as diagrams of abstract graphs and networks. It uses DOT Lanugage scripts. (From Graphviz and Wikipedia)
