These links are to the biggest and best pages on fractals that we found. If you find more, send us them!
This is a huge site that includes software, images, source code for generating fractals, and links. It also has the Fractint web pages.
This site has won many awards, and has many fractal images. Categories on this page include Fractal of the Day, Chaos Demonstrations, Julia Sets, Quadratic Map Basins, Iterated Function Systems, Strange Attractor Symmetric Icons and Newsgroup Collection.
This site contains a huge database of over 500 fractal images; but be warned, some images are very large and may take a long time to load.
This is a great place to go to get started with fractals. It describes many properties of fractals, and provides links to other fractal sites.
This page contains a directory of fractal images and animations, and also provides many links.
