Abstract: We construct new coordinates for the Teichmüller space Teich of a punctured torus into $ {\text{R}} \times {{\text{R}}^ + }$. The coordinates depend on the representation of Teich as a space of marked Kleinian groups $ {G_\mu }$ that depend holomorphically on a parameter $ \mu $ varying in a simply connected domain in C. They describe the geometry of the hyperbolic manifold $ {{\text{H}}^3}{\text{/}}{G_\mu }$; they reflect exactly the visual patterns one sees in the limit sets of the groups $ {G_\mu }$; and they are directly computable from the generators of $ {G_\mu }$.
