(Constrained) Delaunay Triangulation of Planar Straight Line Graphs (pure Python)

Project Description

Tri - (Constrained) Delaunay Triangulation of Planar Straight Line Graphs


  • Download the source
  • Run python install (or python develop)


To triangulate a polygon with one outer and one inner shell:

from tri import ToPointsAndSegments, triangulate
from tri.delaunay import output_triangles, TriangleIterator

# create points and segments for triangulation
pts_segs = ToPointsAndSegments()
pts_segs.add_polygon([[(0,0), (10,0), (5,10), (0,0)],
                      [(0,0), (8,2), (6,4), (5,7), (0,0)]

# triangulate the points and segments
dt = triangulate(pts_segs.points, pts_segs.infos, pts_segs.segments)

# write the output
with open("tris.wkt", "w") as fh:
    output_triangles([t for t in TriangleIterator(dt)], fh)

The resulting file is readable with QGIS (Add Delimited Text Layer).
