Abstract: GroIMP is an open-source 3D-modelling platform, which has been designed for the purpose of creating functional-structural plant models. The modelling language of GroIMP, the language XL, combines the benefits of L-systems and the Java programming language. It allows to describe the plant structure by L-system growth rules and functional aspects using Java constructs. In this presentation, an introduction to GroIMP / XL will be given, followed by an overview of applications in the area of functional-structural plant modelling, but also computer graphics, artificial life or architecture.
