compas.geometry.closest_point_on_polyline_xy(point, polyline)[source]

Compute closest point on a polyline to a given point, assuming they both lie in the XY-plane.

  • point (sequence of float) – XY(Z) coordinates of a 2D or 3D point (Z will be ignored).

  • polyline (list of points or compas.geometry.Polyline) – A sequence of XY(Z) coordinates of 2D or 3D points (Z will be ignored) representing the locations of the corners of a polyline. The vertices are assumed to be in order.


list – XYZ coordinates of closest point (Z = 0.0).
