Ownership diagrams are used in the stock market to represent ownership relationships between companies. Companies are represented as boxes. An edge from Company 1 to Company 2 means that Company 1 owns a certain percentage of Company 2.

Speaking in terms of graph properties, Ownership diagrams are directed graphs.

We suggest to represent Ownership diagrams with orthogonal drawings, i.e., drawings in which the connections between symbols consist of horizontal and vertical segments only.

GAPI tutorial on orthogonal drawings and BLAG tutorial on orthogonal drawings provide a comprehensive guide on how to use GDT to construct these widely used drawings.
