Polygons to Maximum Inscribed Circles

Go to ToolBox Implementation Go to .NET Implementation

Creates  from each polygon in the input feature class a circular polygon representing the circle with maximum radius that can be inscribed in the input polygon. The center of the is located in the "deepest" point of each polygon.  Attributes of the original features are transferred to the resulting polygons.




The function uses an interpolation algorithm and the precision of the calculation might not be 100%
