This Java applet implements a visualization of Fortune’s plane-sweep algorithm for creationg a voronoi diagram.

Here is a live demo of the applet.

The applet was created by Benny Kjær Nielsen and Allan Odgaard in spring of 2000 following a course in Computational Geometry taugbt by Pawel Winter at DIKU.

The purpose of the source is to visualize the algorithm, it is not a good base for an effecient implementation of the algorithm (it does not run in O(n log n) time).

The original source was initially lost and recovered using a Java decompiler so most variable names are nonsensical.
