We consider the notion of property testing as applied to computational geometry. We aim at developing efficient algorithms which determine whether a given (geometrical) object has a predetermined property Q or is "far" from any object having the property. We show that many basic geometric properties have very efficient testing algorithms, whose running time is significantly smaller than the object description size.
