Filters a set of points in a 2D space.
This is the tinfiltering package, created to perform the automated filtering of 2D data points, based on the edges distance distribution of a Delaunay triangulation.
The methodology upon which this package is based on the initial steps of the algorithm proposed by Yang and Cui (2010) in the paper “A Novel Spatial Clustering Algorithm Based on Delaunay Triangulation”.
This package was developed while in my PhD research in the Department of Geography at University College London, supervised by Dr Mat Disney (Earth Observation/Remote Sensing).
If you have any problem, question or suggestion, please, don’t hesitate to contact the author.
Usage as module
>>> import tinfiltering >>> tinfiltering.apply_filter(x, y)
- x, y: list or numpy.ndarray
- Coordinates for the set of points to be filtered.
- out_points: 2D numpy.ndarray
- Coordinates for the filtered set of points.
- If input is in the wrong shape (the shapes of x and y should match).
- If the input is of the wrong type (the inputs must be a 1-D array or list)
Usage in console
>>> tinfiltering in_filename out_filename
- in_filename: str
- Name of the file containing the numpy array point data to be filtered.
- out_filename: str
- Name of the file to save the numpy array of filtered point data.
- Version 0.1.4
