Generalized Steiner points and the corresponding selections for set-valued maps share interesting commutation properties with set operations which make them suitable for the set-valued numerical problems presented here. This short overview will present first applications of these selections to standard problems in this area, namely representation of convex, compact sets in |Rn and set operations, set-valued integration and interpolation as well as the calculation of attainable sets of linear differential inclusions. Hereby, the convergence results are given uniformly for a dense countable representation of generalized Steiner points/selections. To achieve this aim, stronger conditions on the set-valued map F have to be taken into account, e.g. the Lipschitz condition on F has to be satisfied for the Demyanov distance instead of the Hausdorff distance. To establish an overview on several applications, not the strongest available results are formulated in this article.
