Polygon 45 Set Concept
The polygon_45_set concept tag is
polygon_45_set_concept
The semantic of a polygon_45_set is zero or more
geometry regions which have angles at the vertices that are multiples of
45degrees relative to the coordinate axis. A Polygon 45 Set Concept makes
no sense in floating point, but currently does not provide a static assert to
prevent it from being used with floating point coordinates. The result of
such use is undefined. When the intersection of two 45 degree edges
results in a vertex that is off the integer grid that case is handled by
inserting a unit length edge between the two 45 degree edges near the off grid
intersection point. In the case that data represented contains no
45degree angles and is Manhattan a runtime check will default to the Manhattan
algorithm. The results of which are identical to what the 45degree
algorithm would do, but obtained more efficiently.
The motivation for providing the polygon_45_set is
to extend the special case of Manhattan geometry capability of the library to
encompass the slightly less common, but still important special case of geometry
that is described by angles that are multiples of 45degress with respect to the
coordinate axis. This simplifies the implementation of geometry algorithms
and affords many opportunities for optimization. 45degree algorithms can
be 50X faster than arbitrary angle algorithms and are required to provide a
complete feature set that meets the performance requirements of application
domains in which Manhattan and 45degree geometry are a common special case. Users are recommended to use std::vector and std::list of user defined polygons
or library provided polygon_45_set_data<coordinate_type> objects. Lists
and vectors of models of polygon_45_concept or polygon_45_with_holes_concept are automatically models of polygon_45_set_concept.
An object that is a model of
polygon_45_set_concept can be viewed as a model of
polygon_90_set_concept if it is determined at runtime to conform to the
restriction that all edges are axisparallel. This concept casting is
accomplished through the view_as<>() function.
view_as<polygon_90_set_concept>(polygon_set_object)
The return value of view_as<>() can be passed
into any interface that expects an object of the conceptual type specified in
its template parameter. Polygon sets cannot be viewed as single polygons
or rectangles since it generally cannot be known whether a polygon set contains
only a single polygon without converting to polygons.
Operators
The return type of some operators is the polygon_45_set_view
operator template type. This type is itself a model of the polygon 90 set
concept, but furthermore can be used as an argument to the polygon_45_set_data
constructor and assignment operator. The operator template exists to
eliminate temp copies of intermediate results when Boolean operators are chained
together.

Polygon 45 Set Data Object
The polygon 45 set data type encapsulates the internal data format that
serves as the input to the sweepline algorithm that implements polygonclipping
Boolean operations. It also internally keeps track of whether that data
has been sorted or scanned and maintains the invariant that when its flags
indicate that the data is sorted or scanned the data has not been changed to
violate that assumption. Using the Polygon 45 Set Data type directly can
be more efficient than using lists and vectors of polygons in the functions
above because of the invariants it can enforce which provide the opportunity to
maintain the data is sorted form rather than going all the way out to polygons
then resorting those vertices for a subsequent operation.
The declaration of Polygon 45 Set Data is the following:
template <typename T>
class polygon_45_set_data;
The class is parameterized on the coordinate data type. Algorithms that
benefit from knowledge of the invariants enforced by the class are implemented
as member functions to provide them access to information about those
invariants.
