Map geometric object to the surface of a mesh

General

The tool 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 my_mapped_geometry.gml.

Usage

MapGeometryToMeshSurface -m [my_mesh.vtu] -i [my_geometry.gml] -o [my_mapped_geometry.gml]

Simple application example

Input
Often, the mesh resolution and the resolution of the geometric objects like polylines are different.

Result
The result of the application of the algorithm is shown.

Usage for the example:

MapGeometryToMeshSurface -m SubsurfaceMesh.vtu -i TestPolyline.gml -o TestMappedPolyline.gml
