In this paper we study planar morphs between planar straight-line grid drawings of trees. A morph consists of a sequence of morphing steps, where in a morphing step vertices move along straight-line trajectories at constant speed. We show how to construct planar morphs that simultaneously achieve a reduced number of morphing steps and a polynomially-bounded resolution. We assume that both the initial and final drawings lie on the grid and we ensure that each morphing step produces a grid drawing; further, we consider both upward drawings of rooted trees and drawings of arbitrary trees.

Abstract

In this paper we study planar morphs between planar straight-line grid drawings of trees. A morph consists of a sequence of morphing steps, where in a morphing step vertices move along straight-line trajectories at constant speed. We show how to construct planar morphs that simultaneously achieve a reduced number of morphing steps and a polynomially-bounded resolution. We assume that both the initial and final drawings lie on the grid and we ensure that each morphing step produces a grid drawing; further, we consider both upward drawings of rooted trees and drawings of arbitrary trees.
