Geometry library for matlab. Performs geometric computations on points, lines, circles, polygons...

densifyPolygon(poly, N)
function poly2 = densifyPolygon(poly, N)
%DENSIFYPOLYGON Add several points on each edge of the polygon
%
%   POLY2 = densifyPolygon(POLY, N)
%   POLY is a NV-by-2 array containing polygon coordinates. The function
%   iterates on polygon edges, divides it into N subedges (by inserting N-1
%   new vertices on each edges), and return the resulting polygon.
%   The new polygon POLY has therefore N*NV vertices.
%
%   Example
%     % Densifies a simple polygon
%     poly = [0 0 ; 10 0;5 10;15 15;5 20;-5 10];
%     poly2 = densifyPolygon(poly, 10);
%     figure; drawPolygon(poly); axis equal
%     hold on; drawPoint(poly2);

    % indices of current polyline to resulting polygon
    i1 = (i-1)*N + 1;
    i2 = i * N;
    
    % fill up polygon
    poly2(i1:i2, :) = newVertices(1:end-1, :);
