Geometric Art using Mobile Apps
Geometric art is a form of art based on the use and application of geometric figures. A geometric figure is any set or combination of points, lines, surfaces and solids.

A mobile app or mobile application software is a computer program designed to run on smartphones and tablet computers.

Beagle Dog
The Beagle is a breed of small to medium-sized dog. A member of the hound group, it is similar in appearance to the foxhound, but smaller with shorter legs and longer, softer ears. Source: Wikipedia, Beagle.

Delaunay Triangulation
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 circumcircle (circle which passes through the three vertices of a triangle).
