Functions for working with a hexagonal settlers of catan grid
This module implements the coordinate system described in Robert S. Thomas’s PhD dissertation on JSettlers2, Appendix A. See the project at https://github.com/jdmonin/JSettlers2 for details.
Supports Python 3. Might work in Python 2.

` pip install hexgrid `
See https://github.com/rosshamish/catan-spectator for extended usage.
The module is a soup of functions which compute various transforms on tile, node and edge coordinates. Functions are well documented - read function names and docstrings in the code for more info.
### Coordinate System
The coordinate system is the one described in Robert S. Thomas’s PhD dissertation on JSettlers2, Appendix A. See the project at https://github.com/jdmonin/JSettlers2
The idea is that there are three things: tiles, nodes, and edges.
All three have integer coordinates.
Tiles also have identifiers, which range from 1 through 19.
The coordinates are such that it’s easy to compute a tile, node, or edge’s neighbours by adding and subtracting. See the dissertation and/or the code for details.
