Subject: [ggl] Voronoi diagram code?

Hi Anders,

As mentioned Mateusz it's a part of the Boost.Polygon library (not included
in the release yet). All the implementation details are done, however it
requires some code refactoring and documentation to suit Boost libraries
release requirements. At the moment the code is under

There are three approaches used to build Voronoi diagram of points and line
segments: sweepline algorithm, divide and conquer and incremental
algorithms. We used sweepline algorithm because it doesn't have voronoi
diagram reconstruction step, thus it has simpler and clearer site processing
logic (especially for the voronoi of segments).

If this would help you, the incremental algorithm is implemented in the CGAL
