You are here: Manipulators > MinimumSpanningCircleReplacer


Replaces the geometry of the feature with a polygon representing its minimum spanning circle. The minimum spanning circle is defined as the smallest circle that encloses all vertices of the passed-in feature.

If the feature was an aggregate feature, a single minimum spanning circle is computed from all vertices of all geometries in the aggregate. If the feature was a linear feature, it will be turned into a polygonal feature. No change is made to a point feature.
