radius limitation option on v.voroni
|Reported by:||dnewcomb||Owned by:|
In the calculation of foraging areas for different bird species, the foraging areas can change based on the location of adjacent nests. I would like to run v.voroni to calculate polygons out to a maximum radius as a command line option. The end result would be similar to running v.voroni on a set of points , running v.buffer on each point individually create a series of polygon layers of individual circles ( that may overlap), then intersecting the geometry of each v.voroni polygon with each buffer individually to generate a series of polygon layers that are then merged to a single polygon layer.
The bird species that I have in mind has an 800 m maximum foraging range. The preferred out put in this case would be the standard v.voroni polygons in areas where nests are closer then 800m. In areas where there are no other nests within 800m the polygon would be an 800m radius circle. The maximum distance from the origin point of the v.voroni polygon to any edge of the output polygon would be no greater than the distance given in the command line option ( in this case 800m)
