Enclose 5 points with a circle
Posted:
Feb 9, 2014 11:19 AM


Hi,
I'm trying to work out the algorithm to find the centroid and radius to allow me to draw the smallest circle that encloses all points (p[])
I've got an approx algorithm using the centroid and the radius equation but it's not quite accurate enough.
Is anyone aware of a better algorithm?
