Polygons on n Vertices

Explore the myriad shapes that a polygon on vertices can have. The vertices are equally spaced around a unit circle. You can sort the polygons by the number of rotation symmetries, the number of reflection symmetries, the number of edge crossings, or the perimeter. Mouse over a polygon to see the associated data.
