MapGeometryToMeshSurface adjusts the z-coordinates of geometric points from a given geometry file
my_geometry.gml such that they are located on the surface of a given mesh
my_mesh.vtu and returns an updated geometry file
MW: does the tool add points if necessary?
MW: what happens, if the geometry is spreading above the boundary of the mesh or not even close to the mesh?
MapGeometryToMeshSurface -m [my_mesh.vtu] -i [my_geometry.gml] -o [my_mapped_geometry.gml]
Often, the mesh resolution and the resolution of the geometric objects like polylines are different.
MW: so, what happens then?
In the first figure such a situation is depicted. In the second figure the result of the application of the algorithm is shown.
Usage for the example:
MapGeometryToMeshSurface -m SubsurfaceMesh.vtu -i TestPolyline.gml -o TestMappedPolyline.gml
