Detailed Description

Grid of triangles (zones) on the sphere with radius 1, generated by subdividing the icosahedron.

level 0: just the icosahedron, 20 zones level 1: 80 zones, level 2: 320 zones, ... Each zone has a unique integer number in the range [0,getNrOfZones()-1].

Member Function Documentation

int StelGeodesicGrid::getPartnerTriangle ( int  lev,
int  index 
) const

Return the index of the partner triangle with which to form a parallelogram.

void StelGeodesicGrid::getTriangleCorners ( int  lev,
int  index,
Vec3f c0,
Vec3f c1,
Vec3f c2 
) const

Return the position of the 3 corners for the triangle at the given level and index.

int StelGeodesicGrid::getZoneNumberForPoint ( const Vec3f v,
int  searchLevel 
) const

Find the zone number in which a given point lies.

prerequisite: v*v==1 When the point lies on the border of two or more zones, one such zone is returned (always the same one, because the algorithm is deterministic).

const GeodesicSearchResult* StelGeodesicGrid::search ( const QVector< SphericalCap > &  convex,
int  maxSearchLevel 
) const

Return a search result matching the given spatial region The result is cached, meaning that it is very fast to search the same region consecutively.

Returns
a GeodesicSearchResult instance which must be used with GeodesicSearchBorderIterator and GeodesicSearchInsideIterator
