# Tiling graph generator

Wandora's tiling graph generator creates simple Topic Maps graphs that resemble regular polygon tilings. Available graph tilings are:

- Square tiling
- Triangular tiling
- Hexagonal tiling

Tiling generator starts with option **File > Generators > Tiling graph generator...**.
Tiling graphs can be used to model chemical structures such as graphite, graphene and carbon nanotubes for example.

## Square tiling

Square tiling generator creates a rectangle tiling of given width and height. Square tiling is a graph where each vertex is connected to

- four other vertices if vertex is inside the graph.
- three other vertices if vertex is on the edge of the graph.
- two other vertices if vertex is one of the four corners of the graph.

Gives a graph topic map

## Triangular tiling

Triangular tiling generator creates a triangular graph form of given height. Triangular tiling is a graph where each vertex is connected to

- six other nodes if vertex is inside the graph.
- four other nodes if vertex is on the edge of the graph.
- two other nodes if the vertex is one of the three corners of the graph.

gives you a graph

## Hexagonal tiling

Hexagonal tiling generator creates a triangular graph form of given height. Hexagonal tiling is a graph where each node is connected to

- three other nodes if the node is inside the graph.
- two other nodes if the node is on the edge.
- one other node if the node is one of the three corners of the graph.
