This paper proposes a new interactive visualization for analyzing large hierarchical structures and networks. The technique combines of different graph layout methods with a layout refinement process, an interactive navigation mechanism and clustering algorithms. The integration of these components makes it flexible in dealing with a variety of graph and hierarchical structures. Interactive exploration is enabled with chain-context view. We aim to provide user with an effective mechanism for understanding of the nature of various networks. This could lead to the discovering and revealing of the hidden structures and relationships among elements as well as relationships associated with the elements.
