This block experiments how to programmatically circle-clip a Voronoï tessellation, and does not rely on the browser to do the clipping in the screen space. This block follows the work done by Philippe Riviere in its Circular Bounded Voronoi Tessellation. Another experimentation is available in this block.

By default, d3.voronoi comes with a rectangular clipping, through the d3-voronoi.extent() API. This block shows another way to clip the initial tesselation.

The algorithm used in this block is basically a copy/paste of the algorithm used in the d3.distanceLimitedVoronoi d3 plugin I made. The two algorithms have distinct purposes: the plugin leverages UX by defining [interactive and not-too-far] areas around each site, whereas this block define a global clipping.
