Geometry in Action

This page collects various areas in which ideas from discrete and computational geometry (meaning mainly low-dimensional Euclidean geometry) meet some real world applications. It contains brief descriptions of those applications and the geometric questions arising from them, as well as pointers to web pages on the applications themselves and on their geometric connections. This is largely organized by application but some major general techniques are also listed as topics. Suggestions for other applications and pointers are welcome.
