Overlay of Two Simple Polygons with Indeterminate Boundaries

  title={Overlay of Two Simple Polygons with Indeterminate Boundaries},
  author={F. B. Zhan and H. Lin},
  journal={Trans. GIS},
This article outlines procedures that can be used to determine the boundaries and attributes associated with the resultant regions from the topological overlay of two simple polygons with indeterminate boundaries. After reviewing a definition of a simple polygon with indeterminate boundaries, this study first identifies the 10 resultant regions and 1,024 possible topological configurations from the overlay. Procedures for computing the boundaries of the 10 regions are discussed. Methods for… CONTINUE READING
