Detailed Description

SpatialIndex is a quad tree of spherical triangles.

The tree is built in the following way: Start out with 8 triangles on the sphere using the 3 main circles to determine them. Then, every triangle can be decomposed into 4 new triangles by drawing main circles between midpoints of its edges:

.                            /\
.                           /  \
.                          /____\
.                         /\    /\
.                        /  \  /  \
.                       /____\/____\

This is how the quad tree is built up to a certain level by decomposing every triangle again and again.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

◆ SpatialIndex()

SpatialIndex::SpatialIndex ( size_t maxlevel,
size_t buildlevel = 5 )


Give the level of the index and optionally the level to build - i.e. the depth to keep in memory. if maxlevel - buildlevel > 0 , that many levels are generated on the fly each time the index is called.

Definition at line 59 of file SpatialIndex.cpp.

Member Function Documentation

◆ idByName()

uint64 SpatialIndex::idByName ( const char * name)

NodeName conversion to integer ID.

Definition at line 341 of file SpatialIndex.cpp.

◆ idByPoint()

uint64 SpatialIndex::idByPoint ( const SpatialVector & vector) const

find a node by giving a vector.

The ID of the node is returned.

Definition at line 508 of file SpatialIndex.cpp.

◆ nameById()

char * SpatialIndex::nameById ( uint64 ID,
char * name = nullptr )

int32 conversion to a string (name of database).

WARNING: if name is already allocated, a size of at least 17 is required. The conversion is done by directly calculating the name from a number. To calculate the name of a certain level, the mechanism is that the name is given by (# of nodes in that level) + (id of node). So for example, for the first level, there are 8 nodes, and we get the names from numbers 8 through 15 giving S0,S1,S2,S3,N0,N1,N2,N3. The order is always ascending starting from S0000.. to N3333...

◆ nodeVertex()

void SpatialIndex::nodeVertex ( const uint64 id,
SpatialVector & v1,
SpatialVector & v2,
SpatialVector & v3 ) const

return the actual vertex vectors

Definition at line 121 of file SpatialIndex.cpp.

◆ pointById()

void SpatialIndex::pointById ( SpatialVector & vector,
uint64 ID ) const

find the vector to the centroid of a triangle represented by the ID
