Preserving the “mental map ” is a major goal of interactive graph drawing algorithms. Several models have been proposed for formalizing the notion of mental map. Additional work needs to be done to formulate and validate “difference ” metrics which can be used in practice. This paper introduces a framework for defining and validating metrics to measure the difference between two drawings of the same graph, and gives a preliminary experimental analysis of several simple metrics
