How to find the closest point on a line segment to an arbitrary point?

python,geometry
This function is supposed to take in a point parameter which will be used to find the closest point to it that lies on the line segment object. In the example assertion code the function getClosestPoint(Point()) takes Point(10, 0) as parameters and should return Point(5,5) as the closest point to...

Distribute circles around a center circle

javascript,geometry,computational-geometry,famo.us
I'm trying to place six circles around a center circle. Eeach of them has the same diameter so it should be possible to place them around the center without space between or overlaps. I thinking to be close to the solution but there are small overlaps. I can't find an...

Finding faces of volume enclosed by planes

algorithm,geometry,volume
Ultimately, I want to implement an algorithm with the following specifications: Input: N planes in 3 dimensions (Ax + By + Cz = D given for each plane) Output: A list V of vertices, and A list E of edges (pairs from V), and A list F of faces (cycles...

How to efficiently test whether an arbitrary polygon intersects with a square?

algorithm,math,geometry,polygon,intersection
The polygon may or may not be convex. We can assume that the edges of the square align with X and Y axis. Calculating the intersection [A simple algorithm for polygon intersection]1 is an over-kill, as I only need to know whether they intersect (Yes or No)....

Calculate the next position of a point in a window

math,geometry,ocaml
Height = 600 Width = 100 I have a point (x,y) that moves and it's initialized at a random position in the beginning, I'd like to calculate it's next position with sin and cos. the next position maybe at ( if i move with 4 pixels ) x+4 y+4 or...

How do I check if a point is behind another point relative to its location and course?

Approximating relative angle between two line segments on sphere surface

matlab,math,geometry,computational-geometry
I am in need of an idea! I want to model the vascular network on the eye in 3D. I have made statistics on the branching behaviour in relation to vessel diameter, length etc. What I am stuck at right now is the visualization: The eye is approximated as a...

Sort list of coordinates

I have the following problem: I have a list of all the x, y coordinates of a polygon's points. I now need to sort them in such a way that I obtain the points in a clockwise order. Currently I have the 6 coordinates to draw a polygon but its...

How to detect triangle bitmap collisions android?

java,android,eclipse,bitmap,geometry
I'm making an Android game and I'm having some problems with bitmap collision detection. The problem is that one of the bitmaps is a triangle and the second one is a rectangle. I don't know how to detect collision between them because now I use this code: if(policeY<((canvas.getHeight()/20)+eye.getHeight()) && (policeY+police.getHeight())>(canvas.getHeight()/20)){...

Rotate line segment with Button

math,javafx,geometry,coordinates
I have a line which has points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2). I wanted to attach a Button to it, it should align with the line by rotating based on the line segment points. I need some help in calculating the rotation angle for the Button.
