An Optimal Contour Algorithm for Iso-Oriented Rectangles

Abstract

Given a set of n iso-oriented rectangles in 2-space we describe an algorithm which determines the contour of their union in O(nlog n + p) time and O(n + p) space, where p is the number of edges in the contour. This performance is time-optimal. The space requirements are the same as in the best previously known algorithm. We achieve this by introducing a new… (More)
