+One of the important features of the library is implementation of generic
+sweepline algorithm to build Voronoi diagrams in 2D (developed as part of GSoC
+2010 program). Voronoi diagram datastructure has applications in image
+segmentation, optical character recognition, nearest neighbor queries execution,
+etc. It is closely related with other computational geometry concepts: delaunay
+triangulation, medial axis, straight skeleton, largest empty circle.&nbsp;
+Boost.Polygon library provides interface to construct Voronoi diagrams of points
+figure a and line segments figure b (the last could be used to discretize any
+two-dimensional curve). Figure c contains example of medial axis of a non-convex
+polygon. The implementation outperforms most of the known commercial and
+non-commercial libraries in both efficiency and numerical robustness aspects.
