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

pointSetsAverage(pointSets, varargin)
function average = pointSetsAverage(pointSets, varargin)
%POINTSETSAVERAGE Compute the average of several point sets
%
%   AVERAGESET = pointSetsAverage(POINTSETS)
%   POINTSETS is a cell array containing several liste of points with the
%   same number of points. The function compute the average coordinate of
%   each vertex, and return the resulting average point set.
%
%   Example
%   pointSetsAverage
