poly2ccw

Convert polygon contour to counterclockwise vertex ordering

Syntax

[x2, y2] = poly2ccw(x1, y1)

Description

[x2, y2] = poly2ccw(x1, y1) arranges the vertices in the polygonal contour (x1, y1) in counterclockwise order, returning the result in x2 and y2. If x1 and y1 can contain multiple contours, represented either as NaN-separated vectors or as cell arrays, then each contour is converted to clockwise ordering. x2 and y2 have the same format (NaN-separated vectors or cell arrays) as x1 and y1.

Examples

Convert a clockwise-ordered square to counterclockwise ordering.

x1 = [0 0 1 1 0];
y1 = [0 1 1 0 0];
ispolycw(x1, y1)

ans =
         1

[x2, y2] = poly2ccw(x1, y1);
ispolycw(x2, y2)
ans =
         0
