Boundary Tracking of Set of Points
Posted:
Jul 26, 2007 7:04 AM


Dear all, I have a set of points in a plane. I want to find an algorithm that creates a polygon which contains all of my points. Polygon does not have to be convex that is why I do not need a convex hull. Further, I need to ascertian the features of the region i.e. polygon such as general orientation, bounding rectangle major and minor axis of polygon elongation eccentricity and so on. Can someone direct me to web sites where procedures for the solution of my problem are described or even if there is also some open source tools (preferably in java) that go about this problem. Thank you
