AB - In 1979 Kirpatrick obtained a practically feasible algorithm for planar regionlocation working in linear space and logarithmic time, provided the regions are bounded by straight line segments. No algorithm requiring only linear space and log-polynomial time was known, so far, for general planar regionlocation, i.e. for the case where regions are bounded by curves more complicated than straight line segments. As main result of this paper such an algorithm is presented.
