What i really want to do is make a script (or use one that already exists) to create a spider diagram which shows relationships between different items.

Basically i have a database of around 30-50 items, each with a link to between 1 and 15 other items (most of them have around 3 relationships) however they follow no particular mathematical pattern that i can determin but when sketched out the seem to follow a pattern

I did a sketch on a piece of paper and it looks a bit like this: (but not exactly because i lost the paper and did a quick paint sketch instead :) ) so it looks like the follow some kind of pattern


is this even possible in php?

thanks in advance for any comments / suggestions

yes its possible in PHP, however you need to have a good understanding of Screen Images, Geometry. eg. Cos, Sin, Tan, slopes, etc.
