Geogram Predicates

A crate for rust interoperability with geograms robust predicates; via cxx.

Geogram is a scientifically proven, well-documented, feature-rich geometry processing library, which leverages "[...] arithmetic filters (Meyer and Pion), expansion arithmetics (Shewchuk) and simulation of simplicity (Edelsbrunner)."
Be sure to check it out here.

It yields easy access to dependecy-free parts of its code base, as so called Pluggable Software Modules (PSM), which in turn make it easy to write cxx_bridges for these.

Example

With that, you can add geometry predicates to your rust project, without the need to re-implement existing state-of-the-art software. E.g. using geograms incircle predicate for triangles in rust looks like this:

use geogram_predicates as gp

// Define three points that form a triangle
let a = [0.0, 0.0];
let b = [2.0, 0.0];
let c = [1.0, 1.0];

// Define two points, to test against the triangles circum-circle
let p_in = [1.0, -0.4];
let p_out = [1.0, -1.2];

let is_in_circle_p_in = gp::in_circle_2d_SOS(&a, &b, &c, &p_in);
assert_eq!(1, is_in_circle_p_in);

let is_in_circle_p_out = gp::in_circle_2d_SOS(&a, &b, &c, &p_out);
assert_eq!(-1, is_in_circle_p_out);

// Do something fancy based on the result
// ...

Visualizing Advantages of Robust Predicates

Below are visualizations comparing naive and robust orient_2d & in_circle_2d implementations. You can generate these images yourself by running the examples for orient_2d or in_circle_2d.

Naive Robust
orient_2d Orient 2d naive Orient 2d robust
in_circle_2d In circle 2d naive In circle 2d robust

List of currently supported predicates

2D

  • in_circle_2D_SOS()
  • orient_2d()
  • orient_2dlifted_SOS()
  • points_are_identical_2d()

3D

  • det_3d()
  • in_sphere_3d_SOS()
  • orient_3d()
  • orient_3dlifted_SOS()
  • points_are_identical_3d()

Other

  • det_4d()
  • geo_sgn()
  • initialize()
  • show_stats()
  • terminate()

There are a lot of predictes still to be implemented. If you are in need for a specific one have a look at the geograms predicate list. The bridge for any one predicate is implemented pretty quickly, so this crate is easily extendable.

Design

The API to the geogram predicates is designed with the following design principles in mind:

  • Relation to geogram: the function names, signatures and doc strings should be as close as possible to the original. This keeps maintaining, updating and comparing as simple as possible

Contribution

If you see something as

  • a missing geogram predicate,
  • software desing principles that could be improved,
  • potential bugs,
  • ambiguous documentation, typos etc.,
  • ...

feel free to open a PR to address this.
