ExtractClusters

VTKExamples/Cxx/Points/ExtractClusters


Description

This example extracts clusters of points. The points lie on spheres that are randomly placed. Each cluster has a different color. The number of extracted clusters may be less that the number of random spheres, if the points on one sphere are within the specified distance of points on another sphere.

Note

The classes used in this example require vtk 7.1 or later.

Download and Build ExtractClusters

Click here to download ExtractClusters and its CMakeLists.txt file. Once the tarball ExtractClusters.tar has been downloaded and extracted,

cd ExtractClusters/build 

If VTK is installed:

cmake ..

If VTK is not installed but compiled on your system, you will need to specify the path to your VTK build:

cmake -DVTK_DIR:PATH=/home/me/vtk_build ..

Build the project:

make

and run it:

./ExtractClusters
