Resource allocation in ad hoc communication networks is a field of high complexity because of both i) the distributed nature of the interactions between the nodes, and ii) the large set of control variables for even the most primitive networks. Visual representation of this information across physical space and across layers of the network can greatly benefit the understanding of efficient allocation policies in these complex systems. Yet, very few software packages have been developed to address specifically this task, especially for large scale networks. We develop such a software system, and demonstrate some of its capabilities. The system illustrates that multi-layered visualization of the network state can be an effective tool at making network design decisions even in the face of uncertainty and for a large number of network interactions.
