Convex Hull (G Dataflow)

Last Modified: January 12, 2018

Computes the vertices of a convex hull that makes up a specified set of points.

datatype_icon

x

X-coordinates of the points in the plane. You must specify at least three elements in this input.

datatype_icon

y

Y-coordinates of the points in the plane. You must specify the same number of elements in y and x.

datatype_icon

error in

Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

Standard Error Behavior

Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

Default: No error

datatype_icon

convex hull

Indexes of the points that compose the convex hull.

The first and the last elements in convex hull are the same so that the first and last elements form a closed convex hull.

error out

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

Convex Hulls

The convex hull of a finite set of points is the smallest convex set that contains all the points.

In the following figure, the convex hull is the line that connects the points.
