Delaunay triangles
Delaunay triangles

  • 3 sites form a Delaunay triangle if their circumscribing circle does not contain any other site.



The best place is a delaunay circumcenter
The best place is a Delaunay circumcenter

Center of the largest Delaunay circle (stay in convex hull of cites)


Assigned project
Assigned Project

  • Implement Delaunay triangulation

    • I provide graphics, GUI, circumcenter

    • You provide loops and point-in-circle test

  • Report time cost as a function of input size


Applications of delaunay triangulations
Applications of Delaunay triangulations

  • Find the best place to build your home

  • Finite element meshing for analysis: nice meshes

  • Triangulate samples for graphics


School districts and voronoi regions
School districts and Voronoi regions

Each school should serve people for which it is the closest school. Same for the post offices.

Given a set of schools, find the Voronoi region that it should serve.

Voronoi region of a site = points closest to it than to other sites
