Visualizing geometric algorithms - State of the art

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The visual nature of geometry makes it a natural area where visualization can be an effective tool in communicating ideas. This is enhanced by the observation that much of the action in computational geometry occurs in 2 and 3 dimensions, where visualization is highly plausible. Given these observations, it is not surprising that there has been noticeable progress during the past few years in the production of visualizations of geometric algorithms and concepts. There is every rea­son to believe that this will continue and even accelerate in the future. In this note, I briefly survey the current state of the art as well as suggest­ing new directions that should be pursued in the future. Further details appear in the survey article [HD96].
