Find The Length of a Coastline - Programming - Part 3

Sun, 12/17/2017 - 07:56

About a week ago I wrote an article where I hypothesized that I could find the length of a coast-line using an algorithm based on a map or satellite image.

This is part 3 of the programming part of that series.

The task here was to find individual sections of the image that represent islands or land-masses. This way I can target a specific land-mass to be measured and discard the rest. (Ireland, France, The Isle of Mann,...etc).

Inspired by this video I decided to make a good ole' spriograph program. It's true that I was playing around with these types of programs when I was like, 15...well to be fair I guess I started playing around with recursive for loops and writing vectors when I was like ... "8". But, I really didn't have a real understanding on what I was doing until my teen years after taking my first programming classes in junior high. Mr. Jones...Big guy.
