Re: Displaying Delaunay Triangulation


Take a look at's main method for an example of displaying
a Delaunay triangulation as a collection of edges.  Most notably, look
at lines 1013 to 1125, which plot a 3-D tetrahedralization to a VisAD
DisplayImplJ3D display.  You should be able to adapt this code to 2-D
fairly easily; the idea is to use a UnionSet of Gridded2DSets (line
segments) computed from the triangulation's edges.

Good luck,
