Apache2GDL is a Perl script that parses an Apache log file and generates a directed graph of visitors' movement in GDL format for visualization with aiSee.

It also allows you to pipe the graph directly through aiSee and get a mapped SVG or PNG image of the layout.

The generated images help you find out how people actually browse your site -- which paths they take to get from page A to page B, which paths are more popular than others, which pages get the most hits, and whether there are one-way paths and dead-end pages.
