In this paper we construct two distributed algorithms for computing approximations of a largest matching and a minimum dominating set in planar graphs on n vertices. The approximation ratio in both cases approaches one with n tending to infinity and the number of synchronous communication rounds is poly-logarithmic in n. Our algorithms are purely deterministic.
