In mathematics, an Osgood curve is a Jordan curve of positive area. The first example was found by Osgood (1903).

Examples of Osgood curves can be produced by slightly modifying one of the constructions of space-filling curves with image the unit square to make it an embedding, though the cost is that it no longer fills the whole unit square.
