A plane graph is a planar graph with a fixed embedding. In a rectangular drawing of a plane graph, each vertex is drawn as a point, each edge is drawn as a horizontal or vertical line segment, and each face is drawn as a rectangle. A planar graph is said to have a rectangular drawing if at least one of its plane embeddings has a rectangular drawing. In this paper we give a linear-time algorithm to examine whether a planar graph G of the maximum degree three has a rectangular drawing or not, and to find a rectangular drawing of G if it exists.
