Abstract

We show that if a planar graph G has a plane straight-line drawing in which a subset S of its vertices are collinear, then for any set of points, X, in the plane with |X| = |S|, there is a plane straight-line drawing of G in which the vertices in S are mapped to the points in X. This solves an open problem posed by Ravsky and Verbitsky (in: Proceedings of the 37th International Workshop on Graph-Theoretic Concepts in Computer Science, arXiv:0806.0253). In their terminology, we show that every collinear set is free.This result has applications in graph drawing, including untangling, column planarity, universal point subsets, and partial simultaneous drawings.
