error with interior_hole

Here is an error report from Marco

I am trying to simulate the presence of a building within my inundation area. I therefore tried to insert an internal hole, like this:

U = 686072,923091], [686072,923084], [686082,923084], [686082,923091? # building perimeter domain = anuga.create_domain_from_regions(project.bounding_polygon, boundary_tags={'nord': [0], 'est': [1], 'sud': [2], 'ovest': [3]}, maximum_triangle_area=project.default_res, mesh_filename=project.meshname, interior_holes=U, use_cache=True, verbose=True)

Unfortunately I get the following error message:

Traceback (most recent call last):

raise PolygonError?, msg

PolygonError?: Interior polygon [686072, 923091] is outside bounding polygon: [[ 686007.82 923006.11] [ 686145.11 923006.11] [ 686145.11 923145.11] [ 686003.91 923145.6 ]]

Marco's problem was fixed by changing the interior_holes argument assignment from




ie from a list of points to a list of (one) polygon(s).

But a bug still persists as the code produced an error saying that the first point in the list was nor inside the bounding polygon. Which is wrong. So it seems that the inside_polygon procedure works for polygons but not individual points.

Also the precedure create_mesh_from_regions should have thrown an exception when it got a list of points instead of a list of polygons. The same problem probably holds for interiour regions and breaklines.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

If a user passes just a polygon to the interior_holes argument in create_mesh(domain)_from regions then will get an error of the form

Interior hole polygon %s has too few (<3) points.
(Insure that you have specified a LIST of interior hole polygons)

The hint hopefully will alert the user to change the argument to a list of (one) polygons.
