Oh well, that's fine then. An even better approximation might be given by a *concave* hull. I have some code in the lab that will construct Concave Hulls  I just need to polish it up a bit and get it into JTS.

Diego, convexHull proabably will build larger polygons then your starting ones. Here is an example: http://bit.ly/iMt4fe, where the bottom polygon is the convexHull of your point set. giovanni 2011/6/29 Diego Bernini <diego.bernini@...> > Thanks so much. > Actually, I think that an alternative way (with a "upper bound" > approximation) could be given by the "convexHull" method. > I create a MultiPoint object starting from my Coordinate array.

Thanks so much. Actually, I think that an alternative way (with a "upper bound" approximation) could be given by the "convexHull" method. I create a MultiPoint object starting from my Coordinate array. Then I invoke the "convexHull" method. It should return a polygon (except the case the point describe a straight line) and then I can invoke the getArea method.

The best way I can think of to this in JTS is:  Create a LineString from your list of vertices. (Ensure it is closed)  Run union() on the LineString. This will node the linework  Use the Polygonizer to polygonize the linework. The one downside to this is that any holes will show up as polygons as well. It would be nice to have an API which automatically created valid polygons from arbitrary linework. I"ll add this to the feature list...

Hi to all, I am using Java Topology Suite for a project. I have a sequence of coordinates which describes a irregular linear polygon. Actually it may describe an open "linearized curve", but for the moment assume that it describes a irregular polygon, i.e., the sequence is closed (linear ring), the first and the last points are the same. Some experiments show me that JTS allows the creation of a polygon (Polygon object) starting from a sequence which describes a selfintersecting polygon. Calling the "isValid" method returns "false". However the perimeter seems to be calculated well; but the area calculation seems not correct. I think that this is because JTS uses the formula described here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polygon#Area_and_centroid which does not provide the right value when considering selfintersecting polygons. I am wondering if JTS supports more or less directly the split of a selfintersecting polygon to a set of a nonintersecting polygons. If this would be possible, I can calculate the overall area as sum of the areas of the non selfintersecting polygons. Thanks in advance, Diego

Hmmm... actually that doesn't make it much easier. The QuadEdge is one of those data structures which pack a lot of complexity into a seemingly simple concept. It would take a lengthy explanation, which I don't have time to do right now. There's some material on the web, or you can look at the triangulation code to see how it works.

I build a quadedge subdivision (thx to delaunay) and I would like to remove some edges and to add some new ones. Hope it will make it easier.

Good question.... I have to admit, I find working with QuadEdges to be extremely nonintuitive. The Incremental Delaunay algorithm is a fairly nice use of QuadEdges, since the structure naturally evolves as the triangulation is built. But for more ad hoc uses I'm not sure of the best way to construct a QES. I guess the first question is: what are you trying to represent?

This is one idea: First of all, note that the only thing of interest here is the closest point of intersection between the ray from the point in the given direction (heading), and the segments of the ring. Get the envelope E of the ring R. Compute the furthest distance D from the point P to the vertices of the envelope E. Construct a line segment consisting of two points, at distance + and  2D from the point P in the direction of the heading Intersect the line segment with the ring R. For all vertices in the result, compute the nearest one to the original point P. There's a few math details glossed over there, but all the code for doing this should be in JTS right now. To compute a point at a distance D from P and at an angle A, use P2 = P + (D cosA, D sinA) Martin On Tue, Jun 28, 2011 at 5:56 AM, G.

Hi all, many not efficient ways to solve this problem come to my mind, but I wonder if someone can suggest me a "best way" to implement a solution. I have a point and a heading value. I need to find the intersection point where the point hits (if it happens) a polygon's outer ring. The point can fall either inside or outside the polygon. thanks, Giovanni

I think that's essentially the algorithm that Michael Bedward's code is using. Although I think there's room for improvement in the "holeremoval" part.

There's two options to do this: 1) The QuadEdgeSubdivision from which the Voronoi diagram is generated is a fully topological structure. If you're brave you can work with this structure to find adjacency relationships. It's a bit hard to wrap your head around to navigate, though. 2) You can build a simple Polygonal Coverage topological coverage yourself. For your need (polygon adjacency) you will need two structures  a PolygonFace and an Edge. The PolygonFace contains a list of all Edges. The Edge contains a reference to its Right and Left polygon, and to the line segment on which it is based. This line segment should be normalized to allow equality comparison. To build this structure do the following:  Create a set of Edges  For each Polygon, create a PolygonFace  For each edge in the Polygon, look up the Edge in the set. If it does not exist, create it and add it to the set.  Add the PolygonFace to the Edge and add the Edge to the PoylgonFace. You'll also probably want a map from Polygon to associated PolygonFace. You can now trace from Polygon to PolygonFace, to Edges, to adjacent PolygonFaces.

hmmm  just wondering if there's a reasonable way to find neighbors in a Vornoi tesselation... I was looking to implement something like Lloyd's algorithms, as per: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lloyd%27s_algorithm , to partition a 2D set of points into somewhat equally"filled" polygons; if a cell knew its neighbors, and it had more points, it could reassign some of its points to its neighbor. thanks!!

Mike, Good idea. I've found this to be a bit painful myself sometimes. I'll give this some thought to see how best to design and implememt this. One slight tricky part is how to indicate whether a set of geometries should be imported as GEOMETRYCOLLECTION or MULTIPOLYGON. But probably just picking one, add then providing a control to switch the container type should suffice.

Mike, JTS has certainly been giving you a hard time recently.. or is it the other way around? Your model of what's going wrong isn't quite accurate. The buffer algorithm is fully capable of handling selfintersections. The real problem is likely a robustness error arising from the lower precision model. Lower precision tends to exacerbate robustness issues (as you've already noticed!) You may have noticed that this case works fine when run with full FLOATING precision. So this could be categorized as halfway between a bug and a design limitation. Unfortunately, these things tend to be very difficult to fix, so there probably won't be a fix in the short term. The best workaround I can offer at this point is to compute the buffer using FLOATING precision, and then use GeometryPrecisionReducer to reduce the precision back to your 1.0e9 FIXED precision model. I think this should be fairly robust, since buffers tend to have somewhat simplified geometry.
