Summary: Problems in simultaneous graph drawing involve the layout of several graphs on a shared vertex set. This paper describes a Graph Simultaneous Embedding Tool, GraphSET, designed to allow the investigation of a wide range of embedding problems. GraphSET can be used in the study of several variants of simultaneous embedding including simultaneous geometric embedding, simultaneous embedding with fixed edges and colored simultaneous embedding with the vertex set partitioned into color classes. The tool has two primary uses: (i) studying theoretical problems in simultaneous graph drawing through the production of examples and counterexamples and (ii) producing layouts of given classes of graphs using built-in implementations of known algorithms. GraphSET along with movies illustrating its utility are available at http://graphset.cs.arizona.edu.
