The fundamentals of Taxi Cab geometry will be presented and compared to Euclidean geometry. Some people view Taxi Cab geometry as interesting, but not realistic or practical. We will look at application problems and compare Euclidean solutions to Taxi Cab solutions and see that Taxi Cab solutions may actually be more realistic and practical.
