Questions on constructing geometrical figures using a limited set of tools. The compass and straightedge are almost always allowed, while other tools like angle trisectors and marked rulers (neusis) may be allowed depending on context.

The most common use of "geometric construction" refers to the "compass and straightedge" constructions in classical Euclidean geometry. The notion has been extended also to (a) compass/straightedge constructions in non-Euclidean geometries and (b) allowing different sets of tools such as a marked straightedge (neusis) or origami.
