Hilbert curve generator tool What is a hilbert curve generator?
This tool draws Hilbert curves — continuous fractal space-filling curves. You can customize width and height of the space that the curve has to fill and how many iterations to use to fill the space. Currently, due to an implementation limitation, this tool can only generate Hilbert curves up to the 9th order. You can change the background image color and curve color. You can also customize the thickness of line segments and add padding around the curve. The size of curve segments is automatically calculated based on specified width and height. Mathabulous!
