Reports
Bibliographies
 CiteSeer (Penn State Univ)
 a free public scientific literature digital library with over 4 million citations mostly in computer science and the physical sciences. Excellent keyword search capability yields lists of references, crossreferences, and graphs of publication years. The full text of many papers, especially recent ones, is available online for downloading. Very useful.
 Computational Geometry Community Bibliography (McGill Univ, Montreal)
 a Web interface to access Bill Jones' (Univ of Saskatchewan) Geometry Literature Database bibliography with over 13,000 references about computational geometry.
 Computing Research Repository (CoRR) (Cornell Univ)
 an archive of eprint papers in computational geometry.
 Computational Geometry Bibliographies (Univ Illinois Urbana)
 a list of bibliographies specific to computational geometry compiled by Jeff Erickson.
 ACM SIGGRAPH Bibliography
 a Web interface to over 19,000 references in the field of computer graphics.
 ACM Digital Library
 online searchable access to all ACM journals and conference proceedings.
 The Collection of Computer Science Bibliographies
 a bibliography of computer science bibliographies with over 3,000,000 references in all. Includes a search engine spanning all listed bibliographies.
 DBLP: Digital Bibliography & Library Project (Univ of Trier, Germany)
 bibliographic search information on major computer science journals and proceedings. It indexes more than 2,000,000 articles.
Centers
 The Center for Geometric Computing (Brown Univ)
 originally a collaboration of 3 Universities (Brown, Duke, and Johns Hopkins), this is a effort aimed at facilitating technology transfer from computational geometry to relevant applied fields.
 The Geometry Center (Univ of Minn)
 this used to be a significant center of computational geometry work from 19911998 when it lost its funding, and it is now closed with no staff. Only this web site continues as a repository for much of the materials and projects generated by this center.
 The Graphics and Visualization Center (Brown, Caltech, Cornell, UNC, and Utah)
 an NSF Science and Technology Center founded in 1991. It is comprised of 5 Universities, and supports multisite collaboration of research in graphics visualization.
General Information
 Graphics Algorithms FAQ (2001, edited by Joseph O'Rourke)
 with over 80 contributors, this is a large collection of information about basic geometry algorithms used in computer graphics. There are lists of essential books, web links, and detailed descriptions of many frequently used computations. This monitored FAQ is updated and reposted monthly to the comp.graphics.algorithms newsgroup.
 Computational Geometry on the Web (Godfried Toussaint, McGill Univ, Canada)
 an outstanding site by a first rate computational geometer with lots of interesting material and links.
 Geometry in Action (David Eppstein, UC Irvine)
 an outstanding site oriented to showing how theory gets applied in the real world. It has many links for applications of computational geometry to: design and manufacturing, graphics and visualization, information systems, medicine and biology, physical sciences, robotics, and other applications.
 The Geometry Junkyard (David Eppstein, UC Irvine)
 an entertaining recreational site with a large collection of web links, lecture notes, research excerpts, papers, software, problems, and other stuff related to discrete and computational geometry.
 Computational Geometry Pages (Jeff Erickson, Univ Illinois Urbana)
 this is an exceptional site with many links to geometry resources on the web.
 RealTime Rendering Resources (Tomas Moller & Eric Haines)
 the site for the author's book RealTime Rendering. It contains links to other sites concerning the wide range of topics covered in the book, such as: Visual Appearance, Special Effects, SpeedUp Techniques, Polygonal Techniques, Intersection and Collision Testing, Game Programming, and more.
Software
 Graphics Gems Repository (Eric Haines, ACM)
 the official online repository for the downloadable code from the Graphics Gems series of books.
 Computational Geometry in C (Joseph O'Rourke, Smith College)
 the site for O'Rourke's book Computational Geometry in C with downloadable code (in C and Java) for 11 of the algorithms.
 The Stony Brook Algorithm Repository (Steve Skiena, SUNY Stony Brook)
 the official collection of algorithms (over 70 total with 39 for geometry and graph theory) from his book The Algorithm Design Manual.
 3D Object Intersection (Eric Haines & Tomas Moller, ACM)
 maintains a matrix of known algorithms for 3D intersections between many computergraphics geometric objects: rays, planes, spheres, cylinders, cones, triangles, bounding boxes, frustums, and polyhedra.
 Directory of Computational Geometry Software (Nina Amenta)
 for the former Geometry Center (Univ of Minn), this site contains lots of good links to free computational geometry software. Unfortunately, it hasn't been updated since Jan 1997.
 CGAL (Univ Utrecht, Netherlands)
 the "Computational Geometry Algorithms Library" (CGAL) is a collaborative C++ software library of geometric data structures and algorithms. It is free for academic research and teaching, but requires a license for commercial use. CGAL works with the LEDA data structures. There is an online CGAL User Reference Manual.
 LEDA (Algorithmic Solutions, Germany)
 the "Library of Efficient Data types and Algorithms" (LEDA) was a MaxPlanckInstitut research projecy that is now a commercial product. It is no longer free, but academic researchers only pay a small fee compared to commercial users. There is a free onlinemanual that can be downloaded.
 Wykobi (Arash Partow, Australia)
 a free opensource "extremely efficient, robust and simple to use C++ 2D/3D oriented computational geometry library". We have not tested this library, but it appears promising. And its free!
