people of France in 1886. Standing on Liberty Island in New York
Harbor, it welcomes visitors, immigrants, and returning Americans.
Trimaginator for iPad by Paul Ollivier
Trimaginator is inspired by the triangulation invented by the mathematician Boris Delaunay in 1934. While the process behind is complicated, the image is reduced to its essentials and turned into a triangle mesh.

A Delaunay triangulation for a set P of points in the plane is a triangulation such that no point in P is inside the circumcircle of any triangle in the triangulation. It can be shown that for all possible triangulations of P, a Delaunay triangulation maximizes the minimum angle of all angles of the triangles in the triangulation.
Thus, a Delaunay triangulation tends to avoid skinny triangles.
Delaunay triangulation is a good application of the
(circle which passes through the
three vertices of a triangle).
