Abstract An overlay graph of a given graph $\textit{G}$ = $(\textit{V},$ $\textit{E})$ on a subset $\textit{S}$ ⊆ $\textit{V}$ is a graph with vertex set $\textit{S}$ and edges corresponding to shortest paths in $\textit{G}.$ In particular, we consider variations of the multilevel overlay graph used in Schulz et al. [2002] to speed up shortest-path computation. In this work, we follow up and present several vertex selection criteria, along with two general strategies of applying these criteria, to determine a subset $\textit{S}$ of a graph's vertices. The main contribution is a systematic experimental study where we investigate the impact of selection criteria and strategies on multilevel overlay graphs and the resulting speed-up achieved for shortest-path computation: Depending on selection strategy and graph type, a centrality index criterion, selection based on planar separators, and vertex degree turned out to perform best.
