    I got some now... Thanks for your help! I got...

    Medical imaging - how to reconstruct the shape of a tumor from
    CAT scans, and other medical measurements. Lots of new
    geometry and other math was (and still is being) developed for
    this.

    Computer graphics is based on geometry - how images are
    transformed when viewed in various ways


    Structural engineering. What shapes are rigid or flexible,
    how they respond to forces and stresses. Statics (resolution
    of forces) is essentially geometry.
