I bet there's a great deal of gratitude for those tools, I am amazed at the
breadth and detail of this system.

A particular part that may be of general interest to this list : 21 Graphs,
Networks, and Trees [1]

Here is an example of an undirected, cyclic disconnected graph, in which the
nodes are annotated with three-letter codes for airports, and the arcs
connecting the nodes are represented by horizontal and vertical lines, with
90 degree bends used simply to avoid having to draw diagonal lines.

          |         |
         LVG-------PHX---TUS    CIB

  Airline Connections in Southwestern USA

Next is a markup of the graph, using <arc> elements to encode the arcs.

<graph type='undirected'
       label='Airline Connections in Southwestern USA'
  <node label='LAX' id='LAX' degree='2'/>
  <node label='LVG' id='LVG' degree='2'/>
  <node label='PHX' id='PHX' degree='3'/>
  <node label='TUS' id='TUS' degree='1'/>
  <node label='CIB' id='CIB' degree='0'/>
  <arc  from='LAX' to='LVG'/>
  <arc  from='LAX' to='PHX'/>
  <arc  from='LVG' to='PHX'/>
  <arc  from='PHX' to='TUS'/>
