In this paper we introduce the notion of rational Hausdorff divisor, we analyze the dimension and irreducibility of its associated linear system of curves, and we prove that all irreducible real curves belonging to the linear system are rational and are at finite Hausdorff distance among them. As a consequence, we provide a projective linear subspace where all (irreducible) elements are solutions to the approximate parametrization problem for a given algebraic plane curve. Furthermore, we

Therefore, we present a generic answer to the approximate parametrization problem. In addition, we introduce the notion of Hausdorff curve, and we prove that every irreducible Hausdorff curve can always be parametrized with a generic rational parametrization having coefficients depending on as many parameters as the degree of the input curve.
