CGAL::K_neighbor_search< Traits, GeneralDistance, Splitter, SpatialTree > Class Template Reference

#include <CGAL/K_neighbor_search.h>

Definition

The class K_neighbor_search implements approximate k-nearest and k-furthest neighbor searching using standard search on a tree using a general distance class.

The tree may be built with extended or unextended nodes.

Template Parameters
Traitsmust be an implementation of the concept SearchTraits, for example Simple_cartesian<double>.
Splittermust be a model of the concept GeneralDistance. If Traits is Search_traits_adapter<Key,PointPropertyMap,BaseTraits> the default type is Distance_adapter<Key,PointPropertyMap,Euclidean_distance<BaseTraits> >, and Euclidean_distance<Traits> otherwise.
SpatialTreemust be an implementation of the concept SpatialTree. The default type is Kd_tree<Traits, Splitter, Tag_false>. The template argument Tag_false makes that the tree is built with unextended nodes.

Constructor for searching approximately k neighbors of the query item q in the points stored in tree using distance class d and approximation factor eps.

sorted indicates if the computed sequence of k-nearest neighbors needs to be sorted.
