Description: A collection of applications of computational geometry: areas in which ideas from discrete and computational geometry (meaning mainly low-dimensional Euclidean geometry) meet some real world applications, with brief descriptions of those applications and the geometric questions arising from them, including pointers to web pages and other sources of further information. Topics include geographic information systems, computer aided design/manufacturing, medical imaging, computer vision, architecture, graph drawing, origami, textile layout, a Voronoi diagram of McDonalds outlets in San Francisco, and more.
