File Format Description

Mathematical graph created using the DOT language, which allows the specification of undirected and directed graphs; saved in a plain text format and contains the definitions of nodes and edges that make up the graph; used for visualizing relationships between entities.

NOTE: Graphviz graphs now use the .GV extension. The ".dot" extension was deprecated so that no conflict would exist between Graphviz graph files and Microsoft Word document templates, which also use the ".dot" extension.
