I was unable to find any direct support application for GraphViz.

Ulf Wiger posted about this back in '08:
http://www.erlang.org/cgi-bin/ezmlm-cgi/4/32863

His post talks about generating GraphViz DOT files from Erlang Xref output.

You may also find graph_draw useful:

An alternative I recommend is to use JInterface to communicate with a
Java process that uses

(Java GraphViz API).

and http://concise-software.blogspot.com/2009/08/concise-howtos-message-from-erlang-to.html
for starting points on integrating Java and Erlang/OTP :)
