Organization profile

Introduction / mission

Geometric algorithms is the field within algorithms research that is concerned with the design and analysis of efficient algorithms and data structures for problems involving geometric objects in 2-, 3-, and higher-dimensional space.

Organisational profile

The Applied Geometric Algorithms group mainly focuses on geometric algorithms for spatial data and applications of geometric algorithms in the areas of GIScience and Smart Mobility (including Automated Cartography, Geo-Visualization, and Moving Object Analysis), Visual Analytics, Mobile Agents, and e-Humanities. Our approaches frequently combine the rigorous methods from computational geometry – which give performance guarantees with respect to both the quality of solutions and the running time of algorithms – with efficient engineering to achieve results of both theoretical and practical significance.
