This Demonstration shows a Voronoi diagram or a Delaunay triangulation using points on a spiral.
THINGS TO TRY
The algorithm is simple: draw
points on an equiangular (or logarithmic) spiral. The
point has distance from the center equal to
. The difference of the angles between two points is
The points are then used to generate a Voronoi diagram or a Delaunay triangulation.
Sunflower created by Voronoi Diagram of special set of points.
