We study computational aspects of amoebas associated with varieties in $(\CC^*)^n$, both from an exact and from an experimental point of view. In particular, we give explicit characterizations for the amoebas of classes of linear and nonlinear varieties and present homotopy-based techniques to compute the boundary of two-dimensional amoebas.
