Should I use Point.x or Point.getX()?

java,field,point,getter
I have a Point. I am trying to get x as an int. If I use Point.x, I will get x as an int. But I am under the impression that I should be using a getter whenever possible (Why use getters and setters?). The issue with Point.getX() is that...

linux,cloud,kinect,point
I am using Point Cloud Library 1.7.2 on Linux. PCL is working fine though the pcd_write example works. But when trying to run openni_grabber it displays a window screen with three rectangles red, green and black. I have checked that the Kinect XBox is working by running NiViewer and it...

How to detect boundary points

c++,c,algorithm,point,area
I have a set of points in a 2D plane. I need to detect only the points that belong to the shape that borns from the union of this subset of points in order to cover the largest area: that is, the boundary points. The following figure is an example:...

How to get the closest 2 Points from 2 List

c#,algorithm,list,point
I have 2 Lists of Points: var listA = new List<Point>(); listA.Add(new Point(10, 1)); listA.Add(new Point(5, 5)); listA.Add(new Point(15, 35)); var listB = new List<Point>(); listB.Add(new Point(1, 1)); listB.Add(new Point(5, 4)); listB.Add(new Point(35, 15)); Now I would like to do something like: getClosesPoints(listA,listB, Out pointA, Out pointB); I'm currently at...

Size of data type Geography(Point, 4326) in PostGIS?

size,postgis,point,geography
Its constructor takes a POINT and a SRID. Since POINT is two doubles (8 bytes each), SRID is an integer (4 bytes), can one assume that the full structure takes 8*2+4=20 bytes of storage space?

How to plot a sequence of points?

r,point
All info I found so far about R deals with more complex cases than I have. And I have dead simple list of points in form of XY coordinates. Now I would like to plot them, something like: plot(c(3.1,4.4),c(17.2, 5),c(13.0,7.1), ...) How to do it? I chose R because it...

How is jitter determined in ggplot?

r,ggplot2,data-visualization,point,jitter
I was looking over the documentation on jitter in ggplot while making some plots, and I realized that I don't really understand the argument. It states that the arguments are: Width: degree of jitter in x direction. Defaults to 40% of the resolution of the data. and height: degree of...
