    line interpolate points

    A Node module that interpolates the coordinates of any number of equidistant points along a line composed of one or more line segments, at an optional offset. It's particularly useful for GIS applications, and is analogous to the PostGIS ST_LineInterpolatePoint() and Python Shapely's shapely.geometry.LineString.interpolate(). Here's an example of points interpolated over different multi-segment lines (the second group has been offset):

    A range of points interpolated along a multi-segment line.

    the api

    The module exports a single function, interpolateLineRange( ctrlPoints, number, offsetDist ).

    • ctrlPoints is an array of 2D point arrays, like [ [ 5, 10 ], [ 7, 10 ], [ 14, 13 ] ]
    • number is the number of points to interpolate (the endpoints included)
    • offsetDist is an optional distance to move each interpolated point from its container line segment.
    • minGap is an optional minimum distance to maintain between subsequent interpolated points (offsetDist is not taken into account here, as spacing between points is measured along the LineString). May decrease number if the gap between neighbors with that number of points would be lower than minGap.
