But I need the lower limit on the radius to converge on some constant so that a small number of nodes aren't packed together so tightly.

Calculate the radius per above and then if its less than 100 (or whatever you settle on ) set it to 100.

    Calculate the radius per above and then if its less than 100 (or whatever you settle on ) set it to 100.

    That's pretty much what I ended up with. I just defined a couple threshold values to set the minimum and maximum allowable radius.

    Initially, I thought I would do something clever that scaled progressively according to the number of nodes. But this is much simpler, and looks good enough.

    Thanks for your help. Have a great weekend.
