query(Predicates const &, OutIter)

Finds values meeting passed predicates e.g. nearest to some Point and/or intersecting some Box.

Description

This query function performs spatial and k-nearest neighbor searches. It allows to pass a set of predicates. Values will be returned only if all predicates are met.

Spatial predicates

Spatial predicates may be generated by one of the functions listed below:

It is possible to negate spatial predicates:

Satisfies predicate

This is a special kind of predicate which allows to pass a user-defined function or function object which checks if Value should be returned by the query. It's generated by:

Nearest predicate

If the nearest predicate is passed a k-nearest neighbor search will be performed. This query will result in returning k values to the output iterator. Only one nearest predicate may be passed to the query. It may be generated by:

Connecting predicates

Predicates may be passed together connected with operator&&().

Description

Predicates const &

predicates

Predicates.

OutIter

out_it

The output iterator, e.g. generated by std::back_inserter().

Returns

The number of values found.

Example

// return elements intersecting box
tree.query(bgi::intersects(box), std::back_inserter(result));
// return elements intersecting poly but not within box
tree.query(bgi::intersects(poly) && !bgi::within(box), std::back_inserter(result));
// return elements overlapping box and meeting my_fun unary predicate
tree.query(bgi::overlaps(box) && bgi::satisfies(my_fun), std::back_inserter(result));
// return 5 elements nearest to pt and elements are intersecting box
tree.query(bgi::nearest(pt, 5) && bgi::intersects(box), std::back_inserter(result));

Throws

If Value copy constructor or copy assignment throws. If predicates copy throws.

[Warning] Warning

Only one nearest() perdicate may be passed to the query. Passing more of them results in compile-time error.
