C++ library for computational geometry

CGAL (Computational Geometry Algorithms Library) makes the most important of the solutions and methods developed in computational geometry available to users in industry and academia in a C++ library. The goal is to provide easy access to useful, reliable geometric algorithms.

The CGAL library contains: - the Kernel with geometric primitives such as points, vectors, lines, predicates for testing things such as relative positions of points, and operations such as intersections and distance calculation. - the Basic Library which is a collection of standard data structures and geometric algorithms, such as convex hull in 2D/3D, (Delaunay) triangulation in 2D/3D, planar map, polyhedron, smallest enclosing circle, and multidimensional query structures. - the Support Library which offers interfaces to other packages, e.g., for visualisation, and I/O, and other support facilities.

Package version:3.6.1-2



The homepage of CGAL ( offers more information about CGAL.
In particular, a mailing list and the documentation for the library (in PDF and
HTML) are available. The authors ask you to give some feedback about your usage
of CGAL in a short questionnaire (in the download section).


Note that the CGAL documentation cannot

Release notes of CGAL.

----------------------------- Release 3.6.1 --------------------------------
CGAL 3.6.1 is a bug-fixes release. The following has been changed
since CGAL-3.6:

1. General

  - Fix compilation errors with recent Boost versions (since 1.40).

  - Initial support for the Microsoft Visual C++ compiler 10.0 (MSVC
    2010). For that support, CMake>=2.8.2 is required.
