Calculate the distance between two points through the projection on a broken line

Description

Calculate the distance between two points through the projection on a broken line

Usage

line.distance(x1, y1, x2, y2, xl, yl, ap=1, al=0)

Arguments

x1

Coordinate along X of the first point

y1

Coordinate along Y of the first point

x2

Coordinate along X of the second point

y2

Coordinate along Y of the second point

xl

Array of coordinates along X of the broken line

yl

Array of coordinates along Y of the broken line

ap

Coefficient applied to the distance between the first point and its projection on the polyline.

al

Coefficient applied to the distance between the projections of the two points on the polyline.

Value
