The Random Layout algorithm is a Gephi layout that doesn't have a defined purpose to it. It isn't very commonly used either, but sometimes comes in handy when the user isn't looking at anything in particular in the graph and just wants to lay out the nodes in an imaginary rectangular space.
Using the Les Misérables network, we will explain how to use the Random Layout algorithm to obtain a randomized version of the network. The steps remain the same for any other network too. So, let's get started:
