A voxel is a value on a regular grid in three-dimensional space in 3D computer graphics. Voxels, like pixels in a 2D bitmap, do not usually have their position (or coordinates) explicitly stored with their values. Instead, rendering systems deduce a voxel's position based on its proximity to other voxels (i.e., its position in the data structure that makes up a single volumetric image).

Polygons, unlike pixels and voxels, are frequently represented by the coordinates of their vertices (as points). As a result of this distinction, polygons thrive at representing simple 3D structures with a lot of empty or homogeneously filled space, but voxels excel at describing regularly sampled non-homogeneously filled areas.

Voxels are extensively employed in medical and scientific data visualization and analysis. Voxels are used to characterize the resolution of some volumetric displays. A cubic volumetric display, for example, would be able to show 512512512 voxels.
