Abstract of the article: Formal Concept Analysis is a powerful method of data analysis. Visualization of dependencies in FCA is performed by means of linear diagrams of concept lattices. Different approaches for drawing linear diagrams are reviewed. Results of comparisons of several algorithms are presented.
