Abstract: We develop a set of natural coordinates $ (\alpha,\beta)$ on the moduli space of Euclidean tori using the combinatorial structure of circle packings. Surfaces with rational coordinates support Brooks packings, while surfaces with rational $ \alpha$ and irrational $ \beta$ coordinates support generalized Brooks packings with periodic singularities.
