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

splitPolygons(polygon)
function polygons = splitPolygons(polygon)
%SPLITPOLYGONS Convert a NaN separated polygon list to a cell array of polygons
%
%   POLYGONS = splitPolygons(POLYGON);
%   POLYGON is a N*2 array of points, with possibly couples of NaN values.
%   The functions separates each component separated by NaN values, and
%   returns a cell array of polygons.
