About Algorithms and Visualization


Efficient algorithms and data structures are key components in effective solutions to computational problems. The Algorithms Group performs fundamental research in this broad area. Special attention is given to algorithmic problems on spatial data (computational geometry), network algorithms, algorithms for massive data sets (I/O-efficient algorithms), and algorithmic problems from GIS.

This group is chaired by prof.dr. M.T. de Berg

Applied Geometric Algorithms

The Applied Geometric Algorithms group mainly focuses on geometric algorithms for spatial data and applications of geometric algorithms in the areas of GIScience (including automated cartography and moving object analysis), geo-visualization, visual analytics, and e-humanities.

This group is chaired by prof.dr. Bettina Speckmann.


The chair Visualization (VIS) develops methods, techniques, and tools that enables people to obtain insight into in data via interactive computer graphics.

This group is chaired by prof.dr.ir. J.J. van Wijk.
