The Spiroplot App (Media Exposition)

LIPIcs-SoCG-2020-71.pdf (1 MB)


We introduce an app for generating spiroplots, based on a new discrete-time, linear, dynamic system that repeatedly rotates a pair of points, and plots points where they land. The app supports easy definition of the initial situation and has various visualization settings. It can be accessed at
