Compute geodesic distances

Project description

The gdist module is a Cython interface to a C++ library (http://code.google.com/p/geodesic/) for computing geodesic distance which is the length of shortest line between two vertices on a triangulated mesh in three dimensions, such that the line lies on the surface.

The algorithm is due Mitchell, Mount and Papadimitriou, 1987; the implementation is due to Danil Kirsanov and the Cython interface to Gaurav Malhotra and Stuart Knock.
