Projects Using CGAL

This page gathers links to external projects using CGAL. If you are aware of such other projects, we would appreciate if you could send us the corresponding information (name, URL, authors, company/university, category, used CGAL packages).

The GeometryFactory also maintains an (incomplete) list of commercial customers of CGAL.

The list of projects using CGAL is ordered along the following categories (in alphabetical order)
