This paper presents several applications offractional cascading, a new searching technique which has been described in a companion paper. The applications center around a variety of geometric query problems. Examples include intersecting a polygonal path with a line, slanted range search, orthogonal range search, computing locus functions, and others. Some results on the optimality of fractional cascading, and certain extensions of the technique for retrieving additional information are also included.
