# Points In Polygon Test

This function `inpolygon2` is an enhancement of matlab's built-in function `inpolygon`, which supports the calculation of the distances.Support C/C++ code generation.

## Example

```%% data, is same as https://www.mathworks.cn/help/matlab/ref/inpolygon.html fisrst Example
L = linspace(0,2*pi,6);
xv = cos(L)';
yv = sin(L)';

rng default
xq = randn(250,1);
yq = randn(250,1);

%% use inpolygon2 function determine points whether inside polygon
points = [xq,yq];
dists = inpolygon2([xv,yv],points);

figure;hold on
plot(xv,yv) % polygon
plot(xq(dists==1),yq(dists==1),'r+') % points inside
plot(xq(dists==-1),yq(dists==-1),'bo') % points outside
axis equal;
title("points in polygon")```

```%% Distance Rating Heat Map
xy=-2:.02:2;
[x,y] = meshgrid(xy);
points = [x(:),y(:)];
dists2 = inpolygon2([xv,yv],points,true);
dists2 = reshape(dists2,size(x));

figure;hold on;
xydata = [xy(1),xy(end)];
imagesc(xydata,xydata,dists2)
plot(xv,yv,'w-','LineWidth',2)
colormap('jet');
colorbar
axis equal off
title("signed distance hot map")```
