Basic Directional Force Layout Diagram
license: mit

This is an adaption of two of Mike Bostock's force layout examples (Mobile Patent Suits and Force-Directed Graph with Mouseover).

This particular graph is intended as a 'basic' example of a directional force layout graph (hence the arrows) and I intend to add additional examples with variations.
