Furuti 3 globe clip polygon

Full Screen

Research for d3-geo’s polyhedra projections; issue #86: we need to recreate projection.clipPolygon() at least for this type of polygon.

Polygon coordinates given by adding these lines in src/polyhedra/index.js:

  var polygon = [];
  outline({point: function(λ, φ) { polygon.push([λ, φ]); }}, root);

Here we exagerated the value of epsilon to show how this works.

With the usual epsilon, the polygon would look like a line, because its “interior” (in purple) covers the whole sphere. The green line is actually the polygon’s edge on both sides. The polygon has almost no “exterior” (in white).
