Project description

Find the maximally inscribed, axis-aligned rectangle for a given polygon. Find the intersection of multiple polygons.

Installation

pip install git+https://${GITHUB_TOKEN}@github.com/planetlabs/maxrect.git

CLI

# For a given GeoJSON file
$ max-rect [path/to/file]

# Piping
$ cat path/to/file.geojson | max-rect

# For a quick visualization
$ cat path/to/file.geojson | max-rect | geojsonio

# For comparison between the original polygon and the inscribed rectangle
$ cat path/to/file.geojson | max-rect --compare | geojsonio

# Find the intersection of two geojson files
poly-intersect path/to/file1.geojson path/to/file2.geojson | geojsonio

# Find the largest inscribed rectangle that sits within multiple shapes
poly-intersect path/to/file1.geojson path/to/file2.geojson | max-rect | geojsonio

# Find the intersection of two geojson files
poly-intersect path/to/file1.geojson path/to/file2.geojson | geojsonio

# Find the largest inscribed rectangle that sits within multiple shapes
poly-intersect path/to/file1.geojson path/to/file2.geojson | max-rect | geojsonio

Python

from maxrect import get_intersection, get_maximal_rectangle, rect2poly

# For a given convex polygon
coordinates1 = [ [x0, y0], [x1, y1], ... [xn, yn] ]
coordinates2 = [ [x0, y0], [x1, y1], ... [xn, yn] ]

# find the intersection of the polygons
_, coordinates = get_intersection([coordinates1, coordinates2])

# get the maximally inscribed rectangle
ll, ur = get_maximal_rectangle(coordinates)

# casting the rectangle to a GeoJSON-friendly closed polygon
rect2poly(ll, ur)
