My previous polygon clipping tutorial dove into the Greiner-Hormann clipping algorithm. Unfortunately, this algorithm fails at common cases… so let’s revist the problem and try again.
The F. Martinez 2008 algorithm handles coincident edges (unlike Greiner-Hormann), but it still has some minor goofiness. Let’s solve this problem once and for all.
Polygon clipping is an interesting problem: how do you intersect, union, or diff two polygons?
The Greiner-Hormann clipping algorithm is quite beautiful and intuitive. Let’s dissect it and take a look.
