Rectangle in Polygon Containment References?
Posted:
Jul 13, 2009 12:38 AM


Hi,
I am looking for references of an algorithm for containing a rectangle within a polygon. This is a specific case of the polygon containment problem.
I have been able to find references to triangle within a convex polygon, but I want to determine if a rectangle will fit within any general nonintersecting polygon.
Any help would be appreciated.
