This is a survey of recent researches on 2D tree visualization approaches. The whole paper will focus on 2D layouts for general trees including different styles of node-link diagram, main variations of Treemap, some solutions designed especially for mobile devices, and several hybrid approaches. We are not trying to give an exhaustive list of tree layouts here. Instead, we will introduce new ideas in the main categories of general tree layouts, which may inspire more efficient and creative designs.
