### Abstract

Geometric algorithms and data structures are often easiest to understand visually, in terms of the geometric objects they manipulate. Indeed, most papers in computational geometry rely on diagrams to communicate the intuition behind the results. Algorithm animation uses dynamic visual images to explain algorithms. Thus it is natural to present geometric algorithms, which are inherently dynamic, via algorithm animation. The accompanying videotape presents a video review of geometric animations; the review was premiered at the 1992 ACM Symposium on Computational Geometry. The video review includes single-algorithm animations and sample graphic displays from "workbench" systems for implementing multiple geometric algorithms. This report contains short descriptions of each video segment.
