The Use of Voronoi Tessellations in Processing Soil Survey Results
March 1984 (vol. 4 no. 3)
pp. 22-28
D. Arnold, University of East Anglia
W. Milne, University of East Anglia
Manual plotting and analysis of soil surveys is tedious and error prone. Use of Voronoi tessellations could reduce manual processing and automate the process from the point data.
