OrbiCGAL is a software project supported by INRIA as a Technological
Development Action (ADT).
It is motivated by applications ranging from infinitely small
(nano-structures) to infinitely large (astronomy), through material
engineering, physics of condensed matter, solid chemistry, etc
The project consists in developing or improving software packages to
compute triangulations and meshes in several types of non-Euclidean
spaces: sphere, 3D closed flat manifolds, hyperbolic plane.

A particular care will be put on the quality of the code and design. The software will be extensively tested, validated, and carefully documented.
The packages will be submitted to the CGAL editorial board for
inclusion into CGAL, the Computational
Geometry Algorithms Library
