Euclidean space is the space Euclidean geometry uses. In essence, it is described in Euclid's Elements. The Euclidean plane and three-dimensional space are part of Euclidean space. Euclidian space is sometimes called Cartesian space.[1] A few other spaces and mathematical objects that are similar were added later. Euclid based his work Elements on certain axioms. Euclidean space can be described using such axioms.
