Clipping polylines and creating intersections using Scripting on gvSIG

There’s a useful geoprocess to clip simple lines and create a separation at the intersections with other lines. This geoprocess is run on the whole layer, checking the intersections between all the polylines. We can need it to calculate intersection, lengths, selections…

We would run the script when we have a file with polylines similar to this image:

2015-06-29 14_28_40-gvSIG RC1 _ Sin título

Una única entidad seleccionada.

We would get a results like this one, a layer with clipped lines:

2015-06-29 14_32_30-gvSIG RC1 _ Sin título

Varias entidades seleccionadas divisiones de la anterior. Todas las polilíneas están partidas de igual modo.

This geoprocess is similar to the ‘v.clean-break’ tool of GRASS.

The source code of the script is this one, you only will have to change the path to the output file.

import gvsig
import os
from geom import *

def main():
    clean_break(gvsig.currentLayer(), "C:/temp/")

def clean_break(layer, path):
    output = crearCapa_cleanBreak(layer, path)

    features = layer.features()
    for f in features:
        geom = f.geometry()
        values = f.getValues()
        numVertex = geom.getNumVertices()

        for i in range(0,int(numVertex) - 1):
            ver1 = geom.getVertex(i)
            ver2 = geom.getVertex(i+1)
            listVertex = []
            listVertex.append((ver1, 0))
            listVertex.append((ver2, ver2.distance(ver1)))
            lineGoingDivided = createGeometry(2)
            for n in layer.features(): #getSelection():#.features():
                    geomN = n.geometry()
                    numVertexN = geomN.getNumVertices()
                    for ni in range(0,int(numVertexN) - 1):
                        ver1n = geomN.getVertex(ni)
                        ver2n = geomN.getVertex(ni+1)
                        lineGoingCross = createGeometry(2)
                        if lineGoingCross == lineGoingDivided:
                        if lineGoingCross.crosses(lineGoingDivided):
                            point = lineGoingCross.intersection(lineGoingDivided)
                            if str(point)== "MultiPoint2D":
                                print "Error: Interseccion multipunto"
                                #nGeometries = point.getGeometries()
                                #for nG in nGeometries:
                                #    if lineGoingDivided.crosses(nG) and n.crosses(nG):
                                #        listVertex.append((nG, nG.distance(ver1)))
                            elif point.type == 1: #de tipo punto
                                #print "Normal insertion"
                                listVertex.append((point, point.distance(ver1)))
                                print "Error Pass, geometry type: ", point.type

            sortedVertex = list(sorted(list(set(listVertex)), key=lambda vertex: vertex[1]))

            # "Creacion de menores"
            if len(sortedVertex) >= 2:
                for l in range(0, len(sortedVertex)-1):
                    tramo = createGeometry(2)
                    values["GEOMETRY"] = tramo

    return output

def crearCapa_cleanBreak(layer, path="C:/temp/"):
   nombre = "clean_break"
   numero = 0
   while True:
       archivo = nombre + str(numero)
       ruta = path + archivo + ".shp"
       if os.path.exists(ruta):
           numero +=1
       else: break

   CRS = gvsig.currentProject().getProjectionCode()
   schema = gvsig.createSchema(layer.getSchema())
   output = gvsig.createShape ( schema, ruta, CRS=CRS,
       geometryType= LINE)
   return output
