Intersection Crashes On Multipolygons With Empty Holes

Reported by: slambright Owned by: strk
Priority: minor Milestone: 3.1.1
Component: Core Version: 3.0.3
Severity: Annoyance Keywords: empty, geometry


When doing operations to complicated multipolygons, I ran across this. When I had a multipolygon of the form: MULTIPOLYGON (((1.0000000000000000 1.0000000000000000, 1.0000000000000000 5.0000000000000000, 5.0000000000000000 5.0000000000000000, 5.0000000000000000 1.0000000000000000, 1.0000000000000000 1.0000000000000000), EMPTY)) (empty, but existing, holes polygon)

and I tried to intersect it with another polygon, say MULTIPOLYGON (((3.0000000000000000 3.0000000000000000, 3.0000000000000000 4.0000000000000000, 4.0000000000000000 4.0000000000000000, 4.0000000000000000 3.0000000000000000, 3.0000000000000000 3.0000000000000000)))

I get the error: CoordinateArraySequence?.cpp:105: virtual const geos::geom::Coordinate& geos::geom::CoordinateArraySequence::getAt(size_t) const: Assertion `pos<vect->size()' failed. Abort

However, if there isn't an empty hole polygon it works fine.

This happens in both geos3.0.0 and geos3.1.0rc2. I'm running SUSE LINUX 10.1 (X86-64).

I've taken the liberty to paste Martin's comment posted on the list:

This is an error in JTS as well. EMPTY components are generally not handled. The whole idea of having empty components seems pretty pointless to me anyway. I suppose the best thing to do is to simply strip them out in geometry operations.

I believe we can leave the ticket open to not to forget in future, but with clear statement that users are advised to strip EMPTY components out from their geometries.

An abort can't be considered an 'annoyance' to me.. It'd crash the database backend, differently from an exception thrown.

Resolution: fixed
Status: assignedclosed

no need to throw exceptions. crash is fixed. Here are the results:

Mpoly1: MULTIPOLYGON (((1 1, 1 5, 5 5, 5 1, 1 1), EMPTY)) Mpoly2: MULTIPOLYGON (((3 3, 3 4, 4 4, 4 3, 3 3)))

Intersection: POLYGON ((3 3, 3 4, 4 4, 4 3, 3 3))
