Presentation
Walrus is a tool for interactively visualizing large directed graphs in three-dimensional space. By employing a fisheye-like distortion, it provides a display that simultaneously shows local detail and the global context.

Handling
Walrus uses 3D hyperbolic geometry to display graphs under a fisheye-like distortion. rendering at a guaranteed framerate regardless of graph size. coloring nodes and links with a fixed color, or by RGB values stored in attributes. labelling nodes. picking nodes to examine attribute values. displaying a subset of nodes or links based on a user-supplied boolean attribute. interactive pruning of the graph to temporarily reduce clutter and occlusion. zooming in and out.
