2.14. Set of squares generator

This tool creates a set of square grids (polygons) and a transect of their detour for a given territory.

Inputs:

  • x0 - Longitude of point 0

  • y0 - Latitude of point 0

  • x1 - Longitude of point 1

  • y1 - Latitude of point 1

  • Size 1 - Number of cells on the first axis

  • Size 2 - Number of cells on the second axis

  • Side - Cell generation side (right, left)

  • Cell size - The size of a cell’s side, meters

Calculation algorithm: from the point 0 in the direction of the point 1 a line is drawn with a length equal to “Size 1” * “Cell size”. From this line, either to the right or left of it, a second line is laid out with the length of “Size 2” * “Cell size”, meters. These two lines form a grid of squares.

The result of the process is a set of layers:

  • rect1 - a grid of cells the size of “Size 1” * “Size 2” cells, the center of the first cell is at the point 0

  • rect2 - a grid of smaller cells the size of “Size 1” * “Size 2” cells (i.e. 4 times larger cells, each large cell is divided into 4 parts)

  • line1 - bypass lines in the direction, which if perpendicular to the line represented by the point 0 and point 1

  • line2 - bypass lines in the direction, which is parallel to the line represented by the point 0 and point 1

  • centers - cell centers of rect1 grid
