boost::geometry::intersection on two polygons creates self-intersecting polygon

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: Barend Gehrels
Milestone: Boost 1.55.0 Component: geometry
Version: Boost Development Trunk Severity: Problem
Keywords: Cc: snubdodecahedron@…


This program intersects two non-self-intersecting polygons and receives a self-intersecting polygon as output. The expected result was a polygon that does not intersect itself. I tested this on SVN revision 78784, and it failed with:

A B terminate called after throwing an instance of 'boost::geometry::overlay_invalid_input_exception'

what(): Boost.Geometry Overlay invalid input exception


Thanks! Craig

Thanks for the report - I can reproduce your problem but it is not yet fixed

Fixed in commit 85451, was caused by a generated spike. I will add a unit-test-case for this issue to avoid future regressions. It will be released in Boost 1.55
