An Improvement of Zalik’s Containment Test Algorithm and Applications on Terrain Query

Le Hoang Son, Nguyen Duy Linh and Nguyen Thi Hong Minh
Abstract—In this paper, we will herein present an improvement of the containment test algorithm of Zalik et al. (2001) for the purpose of fast computation on the polygon shape datasets over the web environment. Experimental results show that the proposed method is faster than that of Zalik. It will be applied to perform the terrain query on a 3D WebGIS system.

Index Terms—3D WebGIS, containment test, computational geometry, GIS.
