Abstract: 
The present process for the automatic calculus of the contour is an algorithm designed to compute the polygon that describes the area occupied by a set of points in a bidimensional space (2D). The automatic calculus of the contour always generates a regular polygon, convex or concave, processes arbitrary sets of points, adapts itself to the spatial density variation of the points and does not require any previous knowledge concerning the spatial density of the points under analysis. The automatic calculus of the contour can be integrated into software applications to allow the automatic creation of convex or concave polygons from a list of points. The automatic calculus of the contour can be used in any application that requires the definition of the boundary of the region occupied by a set of points, or its contour, such as the automatic identification of the boundary of a region occupied by a set of georeferenced points of interest (POIs).
