CGAL 5.1.3 - 2D Polyline Simplification
PolylineSimplificationCostFunction Concept Reference

## Definition

Models of this concept are passed to the polyline simplification algorithm to calculate the cost of removing a vertex. Such a cost represents some measure of the deviation error between the polyline sets before and after removal. The smaller the error the lower the cost. The algorithm processes vertices in increasing cost order to preserve the overall polyline set shape as much as possible.

template<typename CDT >
 boost::optional PolylineSimplificationCostFunction::operator() ( CGAL::Constrained_triangulation_plus_2< CDT > const & ct, CGAL::Constrained_triangulation_plus_2< CDT >::Vertices_in_constraint_iterator viq ) const

Given a vertex in constraint iterator viq computes vip=std::prev(viq) and vir=std::next(vir), and the cost of removing vertex *viq, replacing edges (*vip,*viq) and (*viq,*vir) with edge (*vip,*vir).

Parameters
 ct The underlying constrained Delaunay triangulation which embeds the polyline constraints viq The vertex in constraint iterator of the vertex to remove
Returns
The cost for removing *viq. The value boost::none can be returned to indicate an infinite or uncomputable cost.
Template Parameters
 CDT must be CGAL::Constrained_triangulation_plus_2 with a vertex type that is model of PolylineSimplificationVertexBase_2. CDT::Geom_traits must be model of the concept ConstrainedDelaunayTriangulationTraits_2.
