If we try to extract the centerline of a polygon using Voronoi polygons, like in my previous post, it works pretty well for hydrologic cases, like extracting a stream centerline from stream banks, e.g.:
We’ll use this to extract flow lines, in order to build out a better hydrologic network, but also use it to update property boundaries based on deed descriptions which may alternately follow distances and bearings, or banks and centerlines of streams and rivers.
But, I was still curious to see how well it does on smaller polygons, e.g. does it help with labeling of parcel polygons:
Not perfect, but not bad. Looks like developing a special case for equilateral triangle, circular, and square shaped polygons (etc) might be in order, as these are probably best labeled in a more simple fashion (see northeast corner of this map, parcel 48517140)… .
