I just want to post a little status update about the Declutter project.
Information about this road map: https://github.com/AnalyticalGraphicsInc/cesium/issues/1097
Currently what we first wanted to have with Dan is the calculation of an oriented bounding box. We decided to have a general 3d OOBB calculation. After checking several papers I decided to implement this solution: http://gamma.cs.unc.edu/users/gottschalk/main.pdf
I implemented it and created some testcases. I opened a pull request on Dan’s fork: https://github.com/bagnell/cesium/pull/1
More testcases are coming.
If the implementation passes, I will create a pull request to the AGI fork.
While planning this project we had some discussions with Patrick and Dan about handling the label overlapping. The next step will be creating a solution for this.
Have a nice day!
