Semantic network is an information model of knowledge domain. Objects and their relations are specified with an attributed graph. Multistripe layout is suitable for visualization of relations incident to the selected set of objects. The method provides a compact drawing that is guaranteed to avoid link crossings and label overlaps for objects and relations of corresponding subnetwork. In this paper we describe a common scheme of the multistripe layout approach and propose the way of visualization of semantic network fragments. These fragments may contain additional relations and objects in comparison with subnetworks considered earlier.
