edge list 1 (DCEL1)

The overlay is a new planar subdivision.

The Overlay Problem

Compute a doubly-connected edge list for the new

planar subdivision.

Every face be labeled with the labels of the containing

faces the input subdivisions.

Half-edge records reusable

since the edge is not intersected

by those from the other subdivision.

to be generated

The General Approach

First, copy the DCE lists of two subdivisions.

Transform the result into a valid DCE list for the

subdivision overlay.

Compute the intersections of edges from different

subdivisons.

Link together appropriate parts of the two DCE lists.

1. Vertex and half-edge records.

2. Face records.

Modify the plane sweep algorithm!

Invariant: the part of

sweep line has been

computed correctly..

DCEL2

Vertex adjacent to edges from one subdivision.

Intersection of edges from different subdivisions.

At an Event Point

Update the event queue and sweep-line status tree as in the

segment intersection algorithm.

In case the event point is

No additional work!

Link the DCE1 and DCE2 at the intersection point.

Handle all possible cases.

Three Types of Crossing

Vertex-Vertex: two vertices from different

subdivisions coincide with

each other.

Vertex-Edge: an edge from one input

subdivision passes through a

vertex of another subdivision.

The other two cases

are no more difficult.

Edge-Edge: two edges from different

subdivisions intersect in

their interior.

Vertex-Edge Update

An edge of one subdivision passes a vertex of another subdivision.

Before:

2 old half-edges

After:

4 new half-edges

Operations in the Update

- Edge e splits into two edges e and e
- at intersection v.

w

- Create their twin half-edges with v as the
- origin.Update the Twin pointers.

Since e has destination v, we need

only set its Next pointer to the next edge

on the face it bounds.

a

This is the first half-edge seen clockwise

from e with v as its origin.

Operations in the Update (cont’d)

Set the Next and Prev pointers of the four

new half-edges.

u

Set the Next and Prev pointers of the four

half-edges (colored red) incident to v from

the other subdivision.

E.g.

How to find it using the DCE list?

Locating where e, e appear in the cyclic order around

v takes time linear the deg(v).

Each of the other operations takes time O(1).

Time Cost for Updating Vertex and Half-Edge Records

O(m) time where m = # edges (incident on the event

point during the sweep).

Generalizes over the vertex-vertex and edge-edge cases.

Updating vertex and half-edge records does not increase the

asymptotic running time of the line segment intersection algorithm.

vertex of the overlay.

Face Update

For each face f :

- OuterComponent(f)
- InnerComponents(f)
- IncidentFace(e) f for each bounding half-edge e.
- label f as (F, G) where F and G are faces in the two
old subdivisions that contain f.

#face records = 1 + #outer boundary cycles

Easy to extract all boundary cycles from DCEL.

Outer Boundary Cycle

How to distinguish an outer boundary cycle from one that

bounds a hole?

Look at the leftmost vertex v

of the cycle with incident

edges e and Next(e).

Let be the angle of rotation

from e to Next (e).

Next(e)

v

> hole boundary

e

< outer boundary

Every boundary cycle corresponds to a node C .

i

One node C for the imaginary outer boundary cycle of the

unbounded face.

(C , C ) is an edge iff

j

Cycles Bounding the Same Face

Construct an undirected graph G such that

(a) one of the corresponding cycles is the boundary of a hole.

(b) the other cycle has a half-edge immediately below the

lowest vertex of the first cycle.

Construction of Graph G

Modify the plane sweep algorithm to construct G.

The algorithm checks the segment immediately below the event point.

cycle C it is on.

2. Add an edge (C, C)to G.

Labeling a Face

Every face in the overlay is labeled with the names of the faces in the

old subdivisions that contain the face.

Consider an arbitrary vertex v:

g

intersection of edges from different subdivisions.

(f, g)

Look up the IncidentFace( ) pointer of the two

corresponding half-edges.

f

existing vertex of one subdivision.

Know only one generating face – the one from

the same subdivision.

For each vertex in one subdivision, keep track

of its containing face in the other subdivision.

f

Plane sweep again (or do it in the same sweep).

// total complexity of DCELs is n

- MapOverlay(S , S)
- Input: two planar subdivisions S and S stored in DCELs.
- Ouput: the overlay of S and S in a DCEL D.
- 1. Copy the DCELs forS and S into a new DCEL D.
- Use plane sweep to compute all intersections between edges from S and S .
- While updating the event queue Q and sweep-line status T, do the following:
- Update vertex and edge records in D whenever the event involves
- edges from both S and S . Let the corresponding vertex bev.
- Store the half-edge immediately below the event point at v.
- 3. Traverse D (using depth-first search) to determine all boundary cycles.
- Construct the graph G
- for each connected component in G
- doCthe unique outer boundary cycle
- fthe face bounded by C
- create a face record forf
- OuterComponent(f) some half-edge of C
- InnerComponents(f) pointers to one half-edge e in each hole
- IncidentFace(e) f for all half-edges bounding the cycle C and holes.
- 7. Label each face in the overlay.
