# Martinez-Rueda polygon clipping algorithm

## Details

The algorithm is specifically fast and capable of working with polygons of all types: multipolygons (without cascading), polygons with holes, self-intersecting polygons and degenerate polygons with overlapping edges.

### Example

Play with it by forking this Codepen

```import * as martinez from 'martinez-polygon-clipping';
const gj1 = { "type": "Feature", ..., "geometry": { "type": "Polygon", "coordinates": [ [ [x, y], ... ] ]};
const gj2 = { "type": "Feature", ..., "geometry": { "type": "MultiPolygon", "coordinates": [ [ [ [x, y], ...] ] ]};

const intersection = {
"type": "Feature",
"properties": { ... },
"geometry": {
"type": "Polygon",
"coordinates": martinez.intersection(gj1.geometry.coordinates, gj2.geometry.coordinates)
}
};
```

### API

• `.intersection(<Geometry>, <Geometry>) => <Geometry>`
• `.union(<Geometry>, <Geometry>) => <Geometry>`
• `.diff(<Geometry>, <Geometry>) => <Geometry>`
• `.xor(<Geometry>, <Geometry>) => <Geometry>`

`<Geometry>` is GeoJSON `'Polygon'` or `'MultiPolygon'` coordinates structure. `<Operation>` is an enum of `{ INTERSECTION: 0, UNION: 1, DIFFERENCE: 2, XOR: 3 }` in case you have to decide programmatically which operation do you need
